KVM on Centos 6.3 cannot boot FreeBSD 9.2 AMD64

One host runs an Intel and works, while an Opteron 2373 does not work despite suggestions from this thread: http://149.20.54.209/showthread.php?t=36761

You need to specify these cpu options:

-cpu core2duo,-xsave

I couldn't get it to boot with -cpu host and the -xsave (disables the xsave CPU function which is the other cause of the crash).
