Running Genntoo inside a QEMU VM
I'm running a couple of gentoo servers on top of KVM very successfully.
KVM basically is QEMU with hardware virtualization support.
You may want to use a 2.6.25 kernel as that has support for the new
paravirtualized virtio block and net devices which speed things up. Also
you should build a tickless kernel if possible as that should reduce the
CPU an idle guest uses.
Performance and stability are top notch in my experience.
I did not set up architectures other than x86 and x64, though.

I'm wondering if anyone has tried to run Gentoo on a QEMU virtual machine.
I'm currently testing Qt/Embedded 4.4.0 and it would be really useful to have
several virtual machines to test it on, specifically arm, mips & PPC.
I've looked at the arm handbook and it says there's only stages for the old arm
ABI, it that still the case? I need to test against EABI really.
