[Xen-devel] [BUG] Xen failed to emulate lfence instruction

Hi !

While working on a VMI app that is supposed to intercepted a specific process,
and set a breakpoint on NtResumeThread in Windows, i got a BSOD.

Analyzing this BSOD with windbg reveals that I was in this location:

    fffff800`02bcc642 0faee8          lfence

And the error code is an illegal instruction.

Also, i can confirm that i was trying to emulate this instruction, since i was
inside my libvmi event callback where i instructed to

I opened an issue on my Github repo:

-> could it be possible that the Xen emulator failed on lfence, even though
it's a quite common instruction ?

Platform: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xen 4.6)

Thanks !
