Whenever I set a breakpoint within QEMU/GDBSERVER, continue execution, and hit
that breakpoint again, TF gets set within RFLAGS and kernel panics upon
continuation, unless I clear the TF manually from GDB.

I'll explore the possibility of detecting QEMU in conjunction with T_TRPTRACE,
as Maxime suggested.

Thank you for your time,
