I have a new test package in here:


I haven't updated the name yet, but this is easy.
Apart from that, the .rpm are useless, as they don't include the firmware
images. (we don't want to ship the binary anyway, which was what current qemu
were doing).

I'll work on it tomorrow. I plan to grab the various pieces needed to compile
the firmwares and other binaries, and colocate them in the same srpm as qemu.

We can use separate packages if we must, but I don't see a big push for it.
We already separate the one which is most likely to be useful for someone else

But I'm open to suggestions.
