I now switched back to 0.11 and disabled Enhanced C1 of my PhenomII and 
AthlonII (I think the MSI BIOS calls it just C1), which makes things better, 
but migrations are not completely stable yet. 

>From http://tinyurl.com/yaacdtu:
"In addition, we have C-states, in the case of the Phenom, it is the C0 and C1 
state with the C1 state being enabled if there are no outstanding IPCs and 
resulting in a clock divider of 1/128. If there is no cache activity either 
or outstanding memory requests, then the CPU can go into the enhanced C1 
state, that is the C1e state where the shared cache and memory controllers 
are clock gated back to 1/16 of the original frequency."

So, currently, it seems to be a KVM-bug related to power saving features.
