This is an absolutely ancient version of QEMU, and you should
use something more modern instead. It looks like there's a
patch against QEMU 1.5.1 in that directory, although that is
still a two year old release.

I notice also that the libvmi README says the patch
"is buggy and may cause your VM to crash / lose data / etc".
If I were you I'd use the other option they suggest, of using
QEMU's built in gdb stub rather than applying their patch.
