Whatever happens, it happens after 10GB of logs, which is simply too

Fault in question.
It doesn't seem to affect other OSes, so I can't imagine what quirk is
being exercised in this case.
As loath as I am to suggest it, we may have to revert the sparc indirect
register patch for the release.
We have more than a month. If it's reproducible, it can be fixed. :)
I do now ping the rest of my sparc improvements patchset. It's
completely independent of the use of indirect registers.
Mark, perhaps you can try to use migration to reduce the amount of
logging? (Start QEMU with -snapshot, try to stop the vm before it
fails. If you succeed, do a "migrate exec:cat>foo.sav" followed by
"commit"; if you fail, try again).
