QEMU emulator version 3.1.0

Windows-95C installation from an official CD fails with the following:

NetBSD Virtual Machine Monitor accelerator is operational
qemu-system-x86_64: NVMM: Mem Assist Failed [gpa=0xb8040]
qemu-system-x86_64: NVMM: Failed to execute a VCPU.

The same install works under XEN using the same QEMU parameters as follows:
qemu-img create -f raw /home/Win95C.dsk 2G
qemu-system-x86_64 -accel nvmm -cpu pentium -smp 1 \
 -cdrom /home/Win95C.iso -name "Windows-95 Install" \
 -netdev tap,id=nd0,ifname=tap0,script=no,downscript=no \
 -device rtl8139,netdev=nd0 \
 -drive file=/home/Win95C.dsk,media=disk,format=raw

Attempts to find a magic set of parameters to QEMU have so far all produced the same results.
As described above.
