Hmm, that node is actually strange - I fixed this problem [1] and as long
as you have your 4.4 Node on latest packages (i.e., qemu-server in version
4.0-111 or newer) you should not run into this at all.

I'll update this section, thanks for noticing!

That should not happen, obviously, but hiccups may be there between major
kernel upgrades and specific SW/HW setups - sadly.
