Already supported upstream (0.9.8) and backported with the rebase into 6.3:

Hello Peter, Jiri,
I know qemu version is 1.0, but I want to confirm which version qemu-kvm and libvirt are? the current bug is ON_QA status, however, I can't find any libvirt version on 'Fixed In Version:' field.

Thanks,
Alex

Hey Alex,

This was fixed prior to the rebase, so any recent libvirt version will have support for it.  You'd also need a non-RHEL qemu to test.

Marking this CLOSED->UPSTREAM, since this is fixed upstream & RHEL does not support running custom built QEMU binaries.

Fair enough
