This is not a a new trace; I had missed it because the "cut here" line
is missing from the log.

qemu command line:

qemu-system-sh4 -M r2d -kernel ./arch/sh/boot/zImage \
-initrd rootfs.cpio \
-append 'rdinit=/sbin/init console=ttySC1,115200 noiotrap' \
-serial null -serial stdio -net nic,model=rtl8139 \
