Martin is right. It is a QEMU bug that only occurs when KVM virtualization is

I also have a minor cosmetic/consistency suggestion. On i386, information about
fatal T_TRCTRAPs is not printed to the kernel ring buffer. On kernels with
DDB/KGDB disabled it would not be obvious why the kernel panicked upon
receiving one. On amd64, T_TRCTRAP is logged like all the other traps.
