What was the virtio-scsi problem ? (Other than SLOF doesn't know about
it yet :-) I haven't audited/tested it so it might have endian issues...

I have reproduced a similar hang with vscsi in full emulation, I haven't
observed your problem with virtio-blk, I plan to spend more time doing
some torture testing & debugging this week see if I can find out what's
going on.

BTW. What was your guest kernel version ?
