I can reproduce this on E5-2620 v2 with  David's "while true" test.
(The emulation failure I mean, not the suberror 2 that Andrey is seeing)
The commit that seems to have introduced this is -

commit 0673b7870063a3affbad9046fb6d385a4e734c19
Author: Kevin O'Connor <address@hidden>
Date:   Sat May 24 10:49:50 2014 -0400

    smp: Replace QEMU SMP init assembler code with C; run only in 32bit mode.
    Change the multi-processor init code to trampoline into 32bit mode on
    each of the additional processors.  Implement an atomic lock so that
    each processor performs its initialization serially.

I am not sure what in that change could cause this though..
Also, in my testing, "unrestricted_guest=0" avoids the failure.
