Description Kevin Wolf 2014-07-28 15:16:09 UTC
When directly sending a QMP command on startup (just piping commands into qemu
is something that qemu-iotests does for some test cases that involve QMP),
qemu crashes:

$ x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -qmp stdio <<< '{ "execute": "qmp_capabilities" }'
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The segfault is avoided by inserting a delay:

$ (sleep 1; echo '{ "execute": "qmp_capabilities" }') | x86_64-softmmu/qemu-system-x86_64 -qmp stdio
{"QMP": {"version": {"qemu": {"micro": 1, "minor": 12, "major": 0}, "package": "(qemu-kvm-devel)"}, "capabilities": []}}
{"return": {}}
{"timestamp": {"seconds": 1406560293, "microseconds": 328605}, "event": "SHUTDOWN"}
