I'm running KVM on top of Ubuntu 10.10 Server
I can create VM's (Virtual Machine) and network interfaces fine but I cannot seem to add more than three network interfaces. As soon as I have a VM with four network interfaces it gets stuck on startup at the starting SeaBIOS page with this message:
Starting SeaBIOS (version pre-0.6.1-20100702_143500-palmer)
So far I've verified this with two VM's, a Ubuntu 10.10 desktop and a Vyatta router. The specific network hardware I assign to the VM's doesn't seem to matter. I'm trying to have one bridged interface and three private networks using Vyatta to route between them.
Does anyone know why I can't run a VM with more than three network interfaces?
Edit: Additionally the KVM thread responsible for the specific VM hangs using ~100% CPU (i.e. one core). Here's the command for the process that is hanging:

Edit: I've also found an error in dmesg that might be related (it also shows up when running virtd in verbose mode):
14:47:24.399: warning : qemudParsePCIDeviceStrs:1422 : Unexpected exit status '1', qemu probably failed
I've also tried disabling app armor but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
