Any chance of bisecting this?

I could imagine that all the stuff we now do for page table isolation
might confuse the VM.

So a few questions:

(a) does it work with "pti=no" on the kernel command line

(b) what was the last kernel that worked? Is 4.15-rc5 fine, for example?

I think this is a vbox issue, with virtualbox not exposing all the
xsave state, so that when the kernel adds up the xsave areas, the end
result doesn't match what the total size is reported to be.

I suspect you _should_ have gotten that before too, independently of the hang.
