From within the VMs, what does 'sysctl vm.mmap_min_addr' show?
Admittedly for Debian, this Debian wiki entry
on mmap_min_addr implies that older versions of Qemu needed mmap_min_addr set to zero to work (newer versions are ok). Are you running an older version?
Also, "Fedora qemu mmap_min_addr" throws up a lot of hits showing Fedora did once have an issue with mmap_min_addr set to 0. Are you convinced you remember accurately (not that I'm doubting you, I mis-remember things all the time).
