Awesome, thanks!

Unfortunately I just found another regression in the pcnet32 driver.  It
works fine with bare qemu, but adding in --enable-kvm, it hangs right
after printing the first bit of the PMM header.  I bisected this one
back to f4faa27, which is of course another large driver rewrite.  If
you have any insights, please let me know.  Thanks,
