 I apologize for the old references, but I wondered the same a while ago
 and managed to get a SMP Realview EB kernel booted in QEMU IIRC.  I
 think it was only armv6 SMP back then.  Main issue I had back then was
 that it wouldn't support PCI so no networking or IDE.  My notes are at:
 (some other related message same month and next month)

 I would myself love hearing what you manage to achieve, with which
 configs and issues!
