OK - try using the qemu that comes with ubuntu 8.04. It should work; at least
it does for me. Our wiki is sadly out of date :/

Does that help?

If not, try using buildrom to generate your coreboot + kernel payload. If you
want to use buildrom, use revision 209, or if you want to use the latest
revision apply this patch before you build:


That fixes kernel and LAB build in buildrom for revisions 210 and higher.

I hope to get that patch committed today.
