What about 'alternetive' Hyper-V implementations? :-)

On a more serious note, my understanding is: if your hypervisor
misbehaves it's 'game over' for you (as a guest), the only question is
how hard is it going to be to figure out what happened. In this
particular case if hypervisor send us garbase we probably want to fail
immediately and not try to handle it as a valid message.

Thank you for your review!
