Description Shaolong Hu 2013-10-14 04:05:28 EDT
Description of problem:
I recently run kvm unit test (using run_tests.sh with default unittests.cfg) with upstream qemu on latest RHEL6.5 host, there are 3 cases get stuck, 2 cases fail.

I am not sure whether this is a kvm bug, or kvm unit test problem, or i run kvm unit test wrong, i only modify run_test.sh and x86_run script a little bit to separate log file for each case, and i use upstream qemu for i was told in RHEL6 testdev device in our internal version may not guarantee to work, so feel free to change the component or close if this is notabug.

BTW, the "-display none" command does not exists, i have to remove it from script or it shows all cases pass but don't run them at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel 2.6.32-421.el6.x86_64
qemu: latest upstream
kvm unit test: latest upstream


vendor_id	: GenuineIntel
cpu family	: 6
model		: 23
model name	: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU    Q9500  @ 2.83GHz

This bug is to track the "vmx" case, which fails, log:

emu-system-x86_64 -enable-kvm -device testdev,chardev=testlog -chardev file,id=testlog,path=msr.out -serial stdio -kernel x86/vmx.flat -smp 1 -cpu host,+vmx
VNC server running on `::1:5900'

paging enabled
cr0 = 80010011
cr3 = 7fff000
cr4 = 20
unhandled excecption 13
Return value from qemu: 7

This testcase is for nested VMX and it is not supported on RHEL6.5
