Problem running 8.1R on KVM with AMD hosts

Hi FreeBSD-stable,

I'm having problems booting 8.1R on a KVM virtualised host backed on AMD
hardware. It works flawlessly on Intel backed KVM. Please find attached
the message I get on boot. This loops endlessly.

Can anyone give me any advice on how to start tracking this down? I'm
happy to give developers access to some paid instances on ElasticHosts
where this problem occurs, if it helps debugging it.

(It works fine in ElasticHosts' lon-p and sat-p data centres, but not in
lon-b, and Intel vs. AMD is apparently the difference).

Best Regards,
