Bug Description

Binary package hint: qemu-kvm

KVM hosts were working OK prior to upgrade. Upgraded kernel to linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic and now hosts hang on boot up.

Reproduced with reduced kvm command as
<code>
$ kvm -cdrom Disk_Images/ubuntu-10.04-beta1-server-amd64.iso -boot d
pci_add_option_rom: failed to find romfile "pxe-rtl8139.bin"
</code>

A console window is opened but is blank and remains that way. Rebooting machine onto previous kernel allows kvm host to start up as expected.
