Description Alexander Larsson 2012-11-14 16:07:50 EST
This is not really a F18 bug, as it affects qemu git only, but i found it while  working on bug 867366.

I have a win7 guest and it always crashes when i restore it from a file like "-incoming "exec:gzip -c -d data.gz"

I bisected the bug to;a=commit;h=d22b096ef6e0b20810193b68a1d472f3fb8a4f9e

And the crash is:

kvm_mem_ioeventfd_add calls kvm_set_ioeventfd_mmio which calls kvm_vm_ioctl which returns EEXIST, which leads to the abort.

The exact command line was:
x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 --enable-kvm -m 2G -smp 4 -name win7 -uuid 88406e09-8378-4879-89a7-c99f35855ffd -monitor stdio -rtc base=localtime,driftfix=slew -drive file=/home/alex/.local/share/gnome-boxes/images/win7-2.img,if=none,id=drive-test,format=qcow2,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device ide-drive,drive=drive-test,id=test -vga std -device virtio-serial-pci,id=virtio-serial0 -chardev socket,id=chardev0,path=/tmp/guestfs,server,nowait -device virtserialport,id=port0,,chardev=chardev0 -incoming "exec:gzip -c -d data.gz"

Hi Alex,

If you're working off git, and can still reproduce with current upstream, please either fire off an email to, or file a bug in qemu's upstream bug tracker:

The audience here is much smaller, you'll have better luck going through upstream channels.
