Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1002286
Disable or remove device isa-parallel
Last modified: 2014-06-17 23:35:27 EDT
Device isa-parallel should be removed or made unavailable with -device / device_add, because we won't support it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. -chardev null,id=par0 -device isa-parallel,chardev=par0
-device isa-parallel is accepted
-device isa-parallel is rejected, just like -device nonexistant
Disabling CONFIG_PARALLEL should do.
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-7.el7
Verify this bug:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -device ? 2>&1 |grep -i isa-parallel
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -device isa-parallel,?
qemu-kvm: -device isa-parallel,?: Parameter 'driver' expects device type
Base on above test, this bug has been verified.
Test with qemu-kvm-1.5.3-21.el7.x86_64 got the same results as comments 4.
