Meanwhile you can always enter the kernel debugger if you have the -dbg package
installed: C-A-d, and reboot from there.
BTW: I run most qemu images as below:
qemu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -m 1980 -net nic,model=rtl8139 -net
user,hostfwd=tcp::5556-:22 -vnc :3 -drive
And to recheck the root partition from GNU/Linux:
/sbin/losetup -o 1048576 /dev/loop0 hurd.img
e2fsck -y -b 32768 /dev/loop0
(offset = 1048576 = 2048*512 if first partition starts at 2028, see /sbin/fdisk
If changes are needed, like reinstalling a backup hurd placed at /mnt/bck:
mount -t ext2 /dev/loop0 /mnt
dpkg-deb -x /mnt/bck/hurd_0.7.git20160114-1_hurd-i386.deb /mnt
dpkg-deb -x /mnt/bck/hurd-libs0.3_0.7.git20160114-1_hurd-i386.deb /mnt
(Don't forget to apt-get install --reinstall these packages when up and runnig)
losetup -d /dev/loop0
