Doesn't seem to work.  Debian package (1:2.11+dfsg-1) ships hppa support but
it doesn't even install binfmt; otherwise, -user is functional enough for a
minimal executable (so arch-test reports it as working[1]), but not for
anything libc:

[/srv/chroots/hppa]# chroot . /usr/bin/qemu-hppa-static /bin/true
/build/qemu-v8TF72/qemu-2.11+dfsg/target/hppa/translate.c:422: nullify_end: 
Assertion `status != DISAS_NORETURN && status != DISAS_IAQ_N_UPDATED' failed.
Segmentation fault

This looks bad enough that I didn't even look at qemu-system.


[1]. On archs without changed baseline, the test is just
write(1,"ok\n",3);_exit(0); unless there's a known issue to look for
such as swpb emulation being nop, etc.
