Unfortunately we finally removed support of QXL in 4.3 release, I
think it's still an open work item.

    libxl: Remove qxl support for the 4.3 release
    The qxl drivers for Windows and Linux end up calling instructions
    that cannot be used for MMIO at the moment.  Just for the 4.3 release,
    remove qxl support.
    This patch should be reverted as soon as the 4.4 development window opens.
    The issue in question:
    (XEN) emulate.c:88:d18 bad mmio size 16
    (XEN) io.c:201:d18 MMIO emulation failed @ 0033:7fd2de390430: f3 0f 6f
    19 41 83 e8 403
    The instruction in question is "movdqu (%rcx),%xmm3".  Xen knows how
    to emulate it, but unfortunately %xmm3 is 16 bytes long, and the interface
    between Xen and qemu at the moment would appear to only allow MMIO accesses
    of 8 bytes.
    It's too late in the release cycle to find a fix or a workaround.

I vaguely remember there's some action taken to fix this, but I might be

If you think it's so important, make an argument on Xen-devel and we
will see what we can do.
