Ticket #7813 (closed defect: wontfix)
Need to build a separate image specifically for emulation

We don't have a good way to virtualize builds since switching to 2.6.24+, since qemu/kvm/etc don't emulate 3dnow and the kernel refuses to boot on them. Choices:
- get a separate kernel build for ext3
- remove the kernel limitation that refuses to boot without 3dnow?
The former seems more likely. Michael also suggests having a tinderbox test for each new build detecting whether it boots under qemu, which I'd be happy to start doing once it's working again.
