[Barrelfish-users] qemu e1000 emulation for barrelfish

I'm trying to boot barrelfish in qemu with an emulated e1000. My qemu
invocation (from the makefile in the build directory) looks like this:

> QEMU_CMD=qemu-system-x86_64 -smp 2 -m 512 -net nic,model=e1000 -net user -fda $(SRCDIR)/tools/grub-qemu.img -tftp $(PWD) -nographic

The message I get back from grub is this:

> Booting 'Chain-load /menu.lst from TFTP'
> root  (nd)
> Error 23: Error while parsing number

Could someone shed some light on this for me? All I changed in grub's
menu.lst was 'model=ne2k_pci' to 'model=e1000'. I've rebuilt qemu to
emulate an e1000 that the barrelfish driver should support (82573L)
and I'd love to see if it actually works!
