I was using GIT HEAD and not buildroot-2009.11, but the
invokation was pretty much the same as shown on the web pages:

$ qemu-system-arm -kernel <filename> -initrd <filename>

I also played around with a couple Qemu options to enable more
serial ports that you connected to via telnet, and that all
worked the way it says it in the Qemu docs.
