Prefix: There is no kernel crash.

Something, rarely, is triggering Guest State, Host State, Control State register and other debug variable dump to kernel log.

The system in question is running many many virtual machines via qemu/kvm. The kernel messages are less often than any running vm is starting or ending.

What triggers this?
