I justed wanted to let you know that emulators/qemu is working great
with DragonFly as a host.

It doesn't build out of the box with pkgsrc, but the following patches fix
the compilation problems:


They were sent by Patrick Georgi back in august and never commited.
I have opened a PR (pkg/37463).

Using the network in bridge mode is a little bit tricky but these commands
did it for me (I use tap2):

ln -s /dev/tap2 /dev/tap
ifconfig bridge0 create
ifconfig tap2 up
ifconfig bridge0 addm tap2
ifconfig bridge0 up

qemu -net nic -net tap,ifname=tap2,script=no -hda diskfile.img -m 256 -localtime
