Is there a hypervisor which has no problems with FreeBSD? I have tried

1. Under Microsoft (former Connectix) VirtualPC, FreeBSD has timer
problems ("microuptime went backwards").

2. Under VirtualBox, some processes tend to hang with the obscure
kernel mesage "sigreturn: eflags = 0x80286" (the VirtualBox
bugtracker claims the issue is fixed, but it is not).

3. Under ESXi, you know.

4. What about Xen? Is it worth trying?
