With no messages in the log?

Maybe they have broken data structures again, most likely
because of different long long alignment. A lot of people
who attempt to design data structures that don't need translation
get that wrong unfortunately.

Emulating that stuff would be hard unfortunately because it has an rather
over complicated ioctl structure that would be hard to write sane
emulation code for.

Complain to the DM maintainers.
