Toying around with LE PowerPC64 via the PowerNV QEMU

I've validated that my ppc64le_hello example runs on top of BenH's PowerNV QEMU tree. Runs really snappy!

The only thing that doesn't work is mixed page-size segment support (MPSS, like 16MB in a 4K segment). QEMU does not support MPSS at the moment. Also, QEMU does not implement any of the IBM simulator's crazy Mambo calls.
