Well, it ended up being harder than I thought. In fact I'm not there
yet ! So the Darwin VM layer dies early because HID5 isn't set
properly, thus dcbz is doing 128 bytes clear instead of 32, clobbering

It looks like Apple's kernel doesn't set the right default in HID5, so
we have to either do it in openbios or in qemu. Alex, what did you find
out back in the day ? Or you never bothered running a 64-bit MacOS
under PR KVM ?

That fixed, it dies elsewhere in something related to page faults,
still digging.
