This is going to be harder to address for QEMU than it was with KVM.
With KVM we only needed to build a native firmeware. For QEMU you
need to build a PPC firmware to go along with the x86 build of the
PPC emulator, etc. Not clear how we'd manage this very easily since
we don't have cross compilers for every QEMU arch.

Can you upload the src.rpm somewhere - when you do a scratch build
from the local src.rpm, koji annoyingly does not make it available
on the task page.
