[Qemu-devel] testing help wanted

Help Wanted
If anyone else could run this on their host OS, then we could eliminate qemu or 
the host OS as a source of the bug. 

All you need to do to help test would be
qemu myimage.img
log in as root
source a shell script

then the build will either fail or succeed. Either way, it would help determine 
where the bug is. 

All you need to do is report your 
1) host OS
2) kernel version
3) host OS filesystem ( probably won't matter but, just in case ...  )
4) whether or not the build succeeded

Any takers?
