 I think it realy is a QEMU bug, the differences between the linux code (which
 is a slightly modified version of our code) is: to set the rounding down
 mode in the FP controll register, Linux uses 32bit operations, while our
 code uses 16 bit ops.
 The only other difference is that we save and restore %xmm0.
 Simple test to verify this hypothesis: run the test under qemu with the
 following patch (untested):

 If this helps, tell the QEMU folks about it.
