so no, I've attempt to reinstall debian 7.8 on bigger qcow2 image and
while doing this I've also changed drive from -hda to -drive
file=debian.img,if=virt and with this I've not been able to install
since it locks up during "Select and install software" at 61%
So I'll try few more times and if this does not work, then I'll switch
to -hda again.

I've kept running qemu-sparc64 with debian 7.7 and was compiling new GHC

Now I'll have a look if I'm somehow able to grow the qemu drive and then
grow debian fs as I would like to avoid reinstall... If any lockups
happen here, I'll let you know.
Thanks for the update - good to hear a report that it's working well for
you. Fingers crossed it makes it all the way to the end...
If your image is a qcow2 then it should be simple to use qemu-img to
expand the image, then boot into a suitable rescue CD in order to resize
