Booting 3.6.0-REL on my not-quite-ancient IBM x3400 (with Intel E5310 QC processor) traps:

CPU0 stopping CPUs: 0x0000000e
Stopped vmx_set_ctl_setting+0x36: rdmsr
db> where
vmx_set_ctl_setting() at vmx_set_ctl_setting+0x36 0xffffffff809721f6

vmm_init() at vmm_init+0xa3 0xffffffff80971c1f
mi_startup() at mi_startup+0xb1 0xffffffff80532775

For reference, 3.4.2-REL worked fine on this machine.

This may be fixed by Mihai's commit in 7dbfa1863e76804114825967c81600a749df5328.

In my case %rdi = &vmx_procbased2, so it looks like we're trapping because we haven't activated the secondary controls yet?

Tomorrow I might try upgrading from source and patching with this fix to see if that solves my issue.
