The problem you're seeing was mentioned in the cover letter,

Since this series was merged, Linus' tree is no longer compatible with
long-standing QEMU bugs.

The best way to fix this is to upgrade QEMU (latest is 5.1.0-rc3). Or use
the serial console instead of the framebuffer console.

I regret the inconvenience but the alternative was worse: adding code to
Linux to get compatibility with QEMU bugs (which were added to QEMU due to
Linux bugs).

My main concern is correct operation on actual hardware, as always. But
some QEMU developers are working on support for operating systems besides

Therefore, I believe that both QEMU and Linux should aim for compatibility
with actual hardware and not bug compatibility with each other.
