Trying to boot freebsd iso on KVM/libvirt [debian host]

Timer shows: 10 sometimes is 9 or even 7. and that's it, count down stops.. Found some information that it's a bug with newest qemu and my kernel version.

iso used is: amd64. machine has 2cpu physical cpu's with 4 cores.

uname -a Linux #2 SMP Thu Aug 25 16:43:23 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

kernel upgrade would be real pain on this damned hosting..
