My code (arch/x86/x86_emulate/x86_emulate.c) does have a case label for it:

3677Â Â Âcase 0xfa: /* cli */
3678Â Â Â Â Âgenerate_exception_if(!mode_iopl(), EXC_GP, 0);
3679Â Â Â Â Â_regs.eflags &= ~EFLG_IF;
3680Â Â Â Â Âbreak;

Maybe the IOPL test fails there? Tamas, does your guest die after a CLI
as well?

I've added a gdprintk(XENLOG_DEBUG, "emulate 0xfa cli\n"); into that switch case but it wasn't printed before the guest crashed.
