It appears the fault is occurring in the OS bootloader, not in the

It's odd that it works with a different SeaBIOS version. You could
try bisecting between 1.8.0 and 1.9.2 to see what change the crash
starts at - but be aware that random differences in the SeaBIOS binary
might be tickling the underlying issue.
You could also try reporting to the kvm list - they'll know how to
interpret the cpu dump.
