Ahh the post-it is still on my desk. Anyways, here it is. It works fine for me, but use at your own risk and so forth: you are changing the code which accesses your data. If all goes as planned you should be able to apply the patch, make and install in the ioemu directory, and have at it without reboot. It would also be possible to have a separate ioemu with lba48 support, if you would rather do some more isolated testing first. Credit goes to Jens Axboe, who is responsible for the qemu patch--his original work can be found on the qemu-devel lists.

Hopefully we got this for free as part of the upgrade to qemu 0.8.1 in xen-unstable.
