Yeah, that's just not going to work.  In theory it might work, but it's never
been tested, so I'm not surprised it doesn't.  In general migration is extremely
finicky when it comes to CPU versions, and versions of the software.

If you are interested in debugging it more, I would suggest stopping libvirtd on
both sides, starting them back up by hand with:

LIBVIRT_DEBUG=1 /usr/sbin/libvirtd --verbose --listen

And then re-running your test.  That will dump lots of debugging information on
both machines, and you might be able to get somewhat of a better idea of what is
