[REGRESSION] qemu-kvm : after upgrading from F17 to F18, RHEL5 guest starts looping (cpu 100%) immediately after loading the initramdisk

Description of problem:
I just upgraded my workstation from F17 to F18 and can't start my RHEL5 guest anymore. The issue is present with qemu-kvm only. When I start the guest with qemu-system-x86_64, it seems to run without problems (just terribly sloooow).
There seems to be some kind of loop, because the qemu-kvm process eats the whole CPU and nothing happens.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Note : RHEL6 guest and Fedora Rawhide seems to run correctly.
What kernel version? Might be a dup of bug 967652.
uname -a says it's 3.9.2-200.fc18.x86_64
tested guest kernels ... 2.6.18-8.el5 and 2.6.18-348.el5
I think this is a dup, please reopen if I'm wrong.
