Description of problem:

When the kvm kernel module returns an error (for example unhandled #VMEXIT), qemu will abort or exit, destroying any information that can help debug the problem.

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

2.  Watch qemu disappear

Actual results:

qemu disappears

Expected results:

qemu stops and waits for someone to debug it
