It is what is discuss-lists for :-)
Well, community knows about booting eCos applications with GRUB and
RedBoot[FLOPPY]+GDB on Qemu. It seems to me that it is good to know that
since Qemu 0.14 it is possible to use the built-in Qemu's tftp-server
% qemu -S ... -serial pty -tftp `pwd`/install/tests/kernel/current/tests
char device redirected to /dev/pts/2
QEMU 0.14.50 monitor - type 'help' for more information
% minicom -o -D /dev/pts/2 -p pts/2
Platform: PC (I386)
RAM: 0x00000000-0x000a0000 [0x0008a030-0x000a0000 available]
RedBoot> load bin_sem0
Using default protocol (TFTP)
Entry point: 0x00108000, address range: 0x00108000-0x0010d820
PASS:<Binary Semaphore 0 OK>
NOTE: This won't work with Qemu 0.13.XX or elder. They have broken TFTP
FYI: They applied my patch and now it works (no need tun/taps).
