Looking at the dmesg output, it looks like you're hitting the issue
where the bochs_drm module panics on load meaning that you end up with
no framebuffer unless you explicitly set the serial console as above.
I actually managed to debug this over the weekend and sent the patch
so qemu-system-sparc64 should work fine with the bochs_drm framebuffer
when the 4.13 kernel comes out.
Adrian - next time you do a set of Debian images, would it be possible
to include this patch until it lands upstream?
