XSAVE migration format not compatible between RHEL6 and RHEL7
Last modified: 2014-06-17 23:35:57 EDT
VMState format for XSAVE data is incompatible between RHEL6 and RHEL7.
RHEL6 used a subsection, RHEL7 bumped the version number. As a result, SandyBridge, Haswell, Opteron_G4 and Opteron_G5 CPU models cannot be migrated to RHEL7.

I duplicate this bug to bug 997702, as talked to Paolo:

This affects all models, not just those listed.

Does it? If xsave is not enabled on CPUID, the xsave section will be skipped.
See bug 1016736 comment 4. But it is possible that for non-XSAVE models the problem is the ACPI one.
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-11.el7
Verify this bug with qemu-kvm-1.5.3-18.el7.x86_64.rpm
Testd four cpu model(include xsave flag)
1. Opteron_G5 2. Opteron_G4 3. Hasswell 4. SandyBridge
Tested seven cpu models(not include xsave flag)
AMD cpu model: Opteron_G1,Opteron_G2 and Opteron_G3
Intel cpu model:Westmere,Nehalem,Penryn and Conroe
All cpu model above works well when migrating from rhel6.5 to rhel7.0 host.
Base on this result above. This bug is fixed.
