I tested with:

$ git show 386cdfb
commit 386cdfbecbbacb600ffc8e2ffa8c7af1b3855a61

which I used for a little while now and to see if its just my "old" OVMF
I also tested the newest version from your jenkins repo (much thanks for 

git show 05b2f9c
commit 05b2f9c94e0c0b663ff2d2fb55397d8215eeb3f5

So without csm.

The OS is 64bit windows 7 professional SP1

The QEMU command for my test:

./x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -boot d -cdrom W7SP1_PROFESSIONAL.iso -m 
1024 -smp 2 -enable-kvm -cpu host -drive 
if=pflash,format=raw,unit=0,readonly,file=OVMF_CODE-pure-efi.fd -drive 

Happy to provide more details/test if needed.

best regards,
