My understanding, which may be wrong, is that arm images with thumb
do not support unaligned accesses (maybe I should say do not support
accesses with the mps2-an385 qemu emulation; I did not test with real
after all).

Given all that, the continued discussion around the subject, and the lack
of agreement if unaligned accesses should be tested or not, I don't really
see a path forward for this patch. The remaining known problem is arm with
thumb instructions. I don't think that is going to be fixed. I suspect that
no one but me even tries to run that code (or any arm:nommu images, for
matter). I'd suggest to drop this patch, and I'll stop testing IP checksum
generation for mps2-an385:mps2_defconfig.

I'm trying to run an ARM kernel built with GCC 13.2 and mps2_defconfig
on the mps2-an385 qemu emulation, and I get the following fatal error.

$ qemu-system-arm -M mps2-an385 -kernel vmlinux

Can you tell how to proceed ?

You can't run it directly. mps2-an385 is one of the platforms where
the qemu maintainers insisted that qemu shall not initialize the CPU.
You have to provide a shim such as
as bios. You also have to provide the dtb file.

On top of that, you would need a customized version of qemu which
actually reads the command line, the bios file, and the dtb. See
branch v8.2.1-local or v8.1.5-local.

It might be possible to find a bootloader which does all that and
prepares the emulation for running Linux, but I don't know if that
exists somewhere.
