There are some preliminary MMU patches for UAE available. They try to
emulate a 040 MMU. Basically that means you can boot a kernel, but as
soon as you try to access any(!) files in an initrd for example, it
will crash with a double exception 2.
Check http://www.freiburg.linux.de/~uae/ for the Unix Amiga Emulator and
the necessary patches plus a small debian boot image.

Aranym, an Atari emulator based on UAE's CPU emulation, has MMU support, too.
This one was added after they took the UAE cpu core, so it's a different
implementation. Don't know if it works.

Don't expect it to be fast... doing virtual address mapping in hardware is
a big speed advantage.. ;)

Any comments, discussion, patches is highly welcome!
