   We need to either fix both of these problems or disable qxl for 4.3
I've been able to track down this error:
Spice-CRITICAL **: red_memslots.c:123:get_virt: slot_id 194 too big,

This little patch fix it:
diff --git a/hw/qxl.c b/hw/qxl.c
index 96887c4..db2e02e 100644
--- a/hw/qxl.c

      d->ram->update_surface = 0;

But then, once this applied, qxl is still not able to start. Xorg crash
(in the guest), and here is why:

Disassembly of section .data:

0000000000000000 <.data>:
    0:    f3 0f 6f 19              movdqu (%rcx),%xmm3

Xen does not support emulating SSE instructions.  We have sporadically
seen similar errors from Windows guests.  The best guess I have managed
to get so far is that %rcx is a pointer to something which Xen thinks is
an MMIO page.

In this case, it looks like X is copying from MMIO into an xmm register,
scraping the framebuffer perhaps?  In the windows failure, it was the
pagescrub trying to zero ram, which clearly indicated something wonky in
the combined idea of the memory map.

If Spice is doing something valid and sensible, then Xen will likely
need extending to be able to emulate SSE instructions.

Not that this helps much with the problem for 4.3

Hmm, is there any way to disable the SSE instructions in X and/or the qxl driver?

I'll take a quick look around to see what I can see...
