The other day I just happened to try to install Windows 2003 on

whole thing stops at "Setup is starting Windows".

The VM is in the "blocked" state; which means it has called HLT and is
waiting for interrupts; but no interrupts are delivered, so everything
just stops.

Windows XP, strangely enough, installs just fine.

I have duplicated this with both qemu-upstream and qemu-traditional;
and also on both AMD and Intel.

I was wondering:
1. if any of you had an idea what changeset might be involved
Any of the RTC emulation changes since 4.2 would be possible
candidates, with mine much more likely than Tim's (since his mainly
fix issues mine introduced).

If you've got a git hash tag for your first change, I can do a quick test to see if that's it.
