I changed the timecounter from XENTIMER to ACPI-fast and then I did about 10
migrations between our 3 hosts. I always started the next migration a few
seconds after the previous migration finished. The VM didn't stuck now and I
didn't see the VGABios screen on the console.

I can also add to this... changing timecounter to ACPI-fast definitely fixes
the problem. I can migrate a handful of freebsd11 vm's back and forth and
all stay running correctly.

So... bug in XENTIMER?
