But I don't see how the divide error could occur here:

ffffffff8103918b: fb sti
ffffffff8103918c: 49 c7 c4 80 c0 6e 81 mov $0xffffffff816ec080,%r12
ffffffff81039193: f6 c3 01 test $0x1,%bl
ffffffff81039196: 74 27 je ffffffff810391bf <__do_so
ffffffff81039198: 4c 89 e7 mov %r12,%rdi
ffffffff8103919b: 41 ff 14 24 callq *(%r12)
Seems like an external interrupt happened and was delivered after the sti?

Hm. I guess it smells like a qemu bug since it's rather easily
reproducible here and sounds strange that nobody else saw it. Is qemu
0.9.1.
