I have been seeing this for a while but didn't know what to post before. It happens when trying to do a warm boot of the guest, but not always. Perhaps 80%+ of the time.
It will either go through the shutdown part and then just freeze before Grub shows or if it does make it past the Grub window it shows softlocks on the CPU. I really don't know what to provide but I do see it showing in the guest log.
This can be followed with a shut down (cold boot) and the guest will boot properly. I think this started happening around the time the 3.* kernels started being used.
Let me know what else you need and I will provide it.
