Thanks for testing. This is working for me with BIOS and EFI boots in
qemu and real hardware but it's mostly been Intel so far. I'll try
harder on an AMD box.

Anything else special about your setup, kernel config or qemu
invocation that might help me reproduce?

If it can repro without KVM, 'qemu -d in_asm' can be extremely useful
for this kind of thing btw.
