I don't have a standalone test that produces that error. With DRAKVUF
it is easily reproducible though. If you have a Windows guest
installed, setting up DRAKVUF should really not be much trouble. With
xen-access it indeed doesn't lock up but since the guest is pretty
much unresponsive during that test I can't verify whether the VGA
issue is now resolved or not. Also the xen-access tests are fairly
limited and don't use all aspects of altp2m.
