Based on the hints, or rather, recipe Brad Spencer posted to
tech-pkg, I used an rpi.img from 9.0, replaced the kernel with
one built from this config:
makeoptions CPUFLAGS="-mcpu=cortex-a7 -mfpu=neon"
and run qemu with
qemu-system-arm -M virt \
-cpu cortex-a7 \
-smp $SMP -m $MEM \
-drive if=none,file=disk.img,id=hd0,format=raw \
-device virtio-blk-device,drive=hd0 \
-netdev type=user,id=net0,hostfwd=tcp::2226-:22,ipv6=off \
-device virtio-rng-device \
-device virtio-net-device,netdev=net0,mac=00:11:66:33:44:66 \
and installing the bootarm.efi in a newly created efi/boot
directory in the MS-DOS file system in the boot image.
Trying -cpu arm1176 which is supposedly a v6 CPU doesn't work,
qemu-system-arm: mach-virt: CPU type arm1176-arm-cpu not supported
Jared says -M raspi1ap works, I've not tested that.
I understand that the cortex-a7 CPU is actually a v7 CPU, but the
entire user-land is v6, and "uname -p" output is "armv6hf".
So far I've not tried to build rust itself "natively", but the
cross-compiled rust binaries I could install via the rust-bin
package, and the build of the cbindgen package completed
successfully in finite time on my emulated armv6 host:
Compiling clap v3.1.6
