I'm afraid there is no change. When I switch on PMMU support only (no
prefetch, no cycyle exact) NVDI still hangs. Maybe I misunderstand what
you wrote above, but just PMMU only should work now, shouldn't it?

I have to admit, I do not understand why these options are not
independent, and why enabling the PMMU and *either* cycle exact *or*
prefetch changes the behavior. This sounds like an intransparent
side-effect to me
