apologies, i'm half-way through moving the stack and etc. to
different locations that don't conflict with the location that
qemu has (i think) placed the skiboot BIOS.

also, the stack location definitely risks conflict with the location that
exceptions are at: 0x500, 0x700, 0x800, 0x900 etc.

this _might_ be solved simply by... oh,                   '-machine',
non-virtualised power9 is already the option used.

does the stack location and memory location matter to you?
(as long as i finish the offset-changes to mp3_1.sh which i
had completed on mp3_0.sh)

the instruction that's causing an exception is stfd (only the 4th one
executed) .... oh ha ha

0x800 is an FPU exception.  i hadn't realised that, thougth it was a
straight LD/ST one.

i *think* it might be necessary to set the MSR FP bit, it could be as
simple as that.

yes, please do put the memory locations back, but do consider putting the
much higher up.
