You should probably Cc one of the Intel guys who implemented this stuff --
I've added Haitao Shan.

Meanwhile I'd be interested to know whether things work okay for you, minus
performance counters and the hypervisor hang, if you return immediately from
vpmu_initialise(). Really at minimum we need such a fix, perhaps with a boot
paremeter to re-enable the feature, for 3.4.2 release; allowing guests to
hose the hypervisor like this is of course not on.
