nvmm crashes on Linux kernels 1.2.13 and 2.0.36, but not on 2.2.18.

Download a Linux distribution with said kernel version, say suse 6.0 (kernel 2.0.36) and boot it with nvmm enabled:

$ wget

$ qemu-system-i386 -accel nvmm -cdrom  SU6001.001.ISO  -m 64M
NetBSD Virtual Machine Monitor accelerator is operational
qemu-system-i386: NVMM: Unexpected VM exit code 0xffffffffffffffff [hw=0x9]
qemu-system-i386: NVMM: Failed to execute a VCPU.
Abort trap (core dumped)

Qemu crashes while the Linux kernel boots up.

Booting the same iso without nvmm enabled does not crash qemu

$ qemu-system-i386 -cdrom  SU6001.001.ISO  -m 64M
