What _exact_ qemu command line did you use?

How did you connect to the "ttyAMA0" serial port? Using minicom or 
something on the same host system, from a different system or what?

Note that D-I works just fine if you just let it run inside a qemu window.
I'm not yet convinced that there is either an installer bug or a busybox 
bug here.
