Bug#758757: kfreebsd-10: d-i bugs caused by qemu-system-i386+smp

Package: kernel-image-10.0-1-486-di
Version: 10.0-6
Severity: important
Affects: debian-installer
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-boot@lists.debian.org


Using qemu-system-i386 with the -smp 2 flag, I started seeing weird
issues early in d-i:  a boot-time generated file
/var/lib/cdebconf/templates.dat being incomplete, truncated and/or
corrupted;  segfaults starting main-menu;  or a hang with kernel message
"pid 97 (debconf): sigreturn eflags = 0x246".

I'm not sure it's actually a kernel issue, or just a Qemu bug.  I think
it's unlikely anyone will run into it, but I do have some real SMP x86
hardware I could test this on if/when I get around to it.
