This is exactly how to *not* ask a question.
Please take the time to read this very informative article:

For instance, you've omitted important information such as:

- linux version
- qemu version
- freebsd version
- freebsd error message when "it dies", if any
- KVM configuration options (disk mode and such)

We've been running FreeBSD 7 then 8 as a guest in Debian linux/KVM for
over 3 years now for our pre-production environment and are very happy
with it.

Please post some more details, that we might be able to actually help.
