[PATCH] KVM: fix lockup on 32-bit intel hosts with nx disabled in the bios
Avi Kivity [Thu, 1 Feb 2007 07:48:13 +0000 (23:48 -0800)]
Intel hosts, without long mode, and with nx support disabled in the bios
have an efer that is readable but not writable.  This causes a lockup on
switch to guest mode (even though it should exit with reason 34 according
to the documentation).
