I've tested it, here is QEMU CLI:
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -enable-kvm  -m 128M,slots=250,maxmem=32G  
-drive if=none,id=hd,file=rhel72,cache=none,aio=native,format=raw -device 
virtio-blk,drive=hd,scsi=off,config-wce=off,x-data-plane=on `for i in $(seq 0 
15); do echo -n "-object memory-backend-ram,id=m$i,size=10M -device 
pc-dimm,id=dimm$i,memdev=m$i "; done`

boot and then do:
dd if=/dev/vda of=/dev/null bs=16M

without fix it hangs either at boot time or when doing 'dd'
