  Nah, hang on, I'll give the psychic debugging a go.  <places hand to
forehead, covering eyes, waves other hand out in front of me in a
mystical-looking way>  I'm getting something.... the spirits are talking... or
maybe it's just the beer...  and they tell me: The problem is that the CPUID
instruction in your virtual machine is returning some kind of bogus output
that's leading set_fpu() to believe the CPU supports SSE, but the emulation in
fact does not, and it blows up here:
