Etherboot likes to try to write to its ROM area. That's why I actually
silenced the warning in __hvm_copy(). I would guess the reason you see this
issue now is because the accesses are taking the shadow-fault path, which
means you are no longer emulating real mode? ;-)

Possibly we should silence the shadow code too, at least perhaps while in
real mode or for a certain EIP range.
