Description Markus Armbruster 2013-08-28 15:32:18 EDT
Device isa-parallel should be removed or made unavailable with -device / device_add, because we won't support it.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. -chardev null,id=par0 -device isa-parallel,chardev=par0

Actual results:
-device isa-parallel is accepted

Expected results:
-device isa-parallel is rejected, just like -device nonexistant

Additional info:
Disabling CONFIG_PARALLEL should do.

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.
