My patch, plus the configuration and comments from your patch,
combined.  Plus I tested it with libguestfs boot-analysis and it works
and is still fast.

Integrating this so it happens automatically when the user adds
-kernel on x86 seems quite complicated.  The only way I could do it
was by adding #ifdef defined(__x86_64__) etc to vl.c, which doesn't
seem very nice.  The problem is the machine type code doesn't know
that you're using -kernel.
