I know. But sometimes you need to keep an old version and a good way to
handle this is to run such an old version in a virtual environment.
A vhost supplies virtual hardware and apparently this virtual hardware
has changed. This is not A Good Thing IMHO.

It runs well under subversion 27 of the pve kernel but has stopped
under version 30. So I think this is a bug as I do not expect design
changes between subversion 27 and 30.
