Okay, you'll need to make sure that hvmloader and qemu are both being 
rebuilt and reinstalled.

I am sure both are built with the patch and installed correctly.

The really curious thing is that eip from the VMCS is set to 0.  eip 
should be address of the EIP of whatever movl cr0 instruction that 
occurs when returning from main() in hvmloader.

I also find that x86_emulate() is never called while emulate_realmode is set in the hypervisor.

I guess it's possible that if you are using a version of unstable that 
predates Keir's recent hvmloader changes, you wouldn't have hvmloader 
switching to real mode.  That could explain some of the weirdness you're 
seeing.  What changeset are you on?
So far I am using: r14560_20070326

Now I am trying with: r14631_20070329
