./emulators/gxemul, Framework for full-system computer architecture emulation

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.6.0.1nb6, Package name: gxemul-0.6.0.1nb6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

GXemul is a framework for full-system computer architecture emulation.
Several processor architectures and machine types have been implemented.
It is working well enough to allow unmodified "guest" operating systems to
run inside the emulator, as if they were running on real hardware.

The emulator emulates (networks of) real machines. The machines may consist
of ARM, MIPS, Motorola 88K, PowerPC, and SuperH processors, and various
surrounding hardware components such as framebuffers, busses, interrupt
controllers, ethernet controllers, disk controllers, and serial port
controllers.

GXemul, including the dynamic translation system, is implemented in portable
C++, which means that the emulator will (at least in theory) run on
practically any modern host architecture and unix-like operating system, for
which a C++ compiler is available.

The documentation lists the machines and specific guest operating systems
that can be regarded as "working" in GXemul. The guest operating system
that works best in GXemul is NetBSD/pmax.

Log message:
*: Move SUBST_STAGE from post-patch to pre-configure

Performing substitutions during post-patch breaks tools such as mkpatches,
making it very difficult to regenerate correct patches after making changes,
and often leading to substituted string replacements being committed.

Log message:
gxemul: Fix build with clang 7svn

Fix C++11 literals, they are now fatal. Reverting to C++98 does not work
as it is, as this code uses C++11 extensions like 'PRIx32' macros.

Extend one int to long in order to handle all values in a switch() case.

No functional change intended.

Log message:
the MIPS 4Kc, 4KEc, 5Kc and 5KE cpus don't have an FPU.

this will break the MALTA kernel in gxemul, but the real hardware does
not have an FPU..

bump pkg revision.
