I should mention that this only happens with our introspection agent
active, which calls XEN_DOMCTL_gethvmcontext_partial as soon as the
guest is up. That is the call that ends up in hvm_save_one() and then
further on to svm_vmsave_pa().

Starting a guest "normally" is fine, everything works as expected.
