Hey Ed

I have an issue with qemu-2.6 and Windows guests (2003, XP, 7, 2012) on
physical Slackware64 14.2 and Slackware 14.2 servers. My problem is disk
writes are *extremely slow*, to the point that I can't even start the
installer because the "Starting Windows..." screen never goes away. I've
tried it on different pieces of hardware but have not had any luck yet.
In my case, qemu-2.4 works just fine on 14.1 and 14.2, so I've reverted
to that. I'll do some testing over the weekend and see if I can track
down what's causing this.
