You mean apart from my use-case of wanting to emulate a PC to install any
of the Vmware ESX/ESXi Products (specifically PXE booting ESXi) ?
(I appreciate that this fails further the down the boot due to some other
incompleteness in IA32 PC emulation of QEMU)
How many use-cases are needed ?
When you actually get ESX working in QEMU, then we can revisit whether
this is really necessary or not. At this point in time, you don't know
for sure whether disabling vmport really makes things better or not.
All you know, is that it fails with a different type of error. You may
discover down the road that the only way to get ESX working under QEMU
is to add something to vmport as opposed to disabling it altogether.
