[sorry if this is the wrong list, but I haven't figured out any public
 address where I could send kqemu bug reports and patches]

Currently, both NetBSD and OpenBSD are hanging or crashing when running
on qemu with the kqemu accelerator enabled.

This happens because both systems are using a weird scheme where they
are loading the GDT table with LGDT up-front (with the limit set to
the maximum), but are growing the table and actually mapping the memory
behind it only when needed.
(see src/sys/arch/i386/i386/gdt.c in both source trees)

That is causing the kqemu accelerator to generate a page fault in
update_dt_cache() when trying to fill its 'soft' tlb with pages that
are beyond the real end of the GDT table.

With this diff applied, NetBSD and OpenBSD seem to run fine with
kqemu + user-only virtualization (I've tried netbsd-4.0-rc2 and
openbsd 4.2).

Full virtualization (-kernel-kqemu) doesn't work yet for different
reasons (I think).
