Description Richard W.M. Jones 2014-10-15 07:38:36 UTC
Description of problem:

I suspect we need to carry this patch in RHEL 7.1:


It's not accepted upstream yet, waiting on a few more ACKs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Not reproducible.  It's a bug that probably only breaks
big-endian architectures.

Comment 2 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-11-03 12:00:51 UTC
Since it looks as if this patch is about to go upstream, I'm
providing dev-ack.

Note that the final version is a bit different from the one
posted first.  The final version is:


Miya: Can someone in your team consider this bug for QA ack?
It's difficult to QA since it doesn't cause a failure on x86
systems.  Perhaps it's best to just check that the patch was

Comment 3 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-11-04 10:06:36 UTC
Now upstream (commit f76faeda4bd59f972d09dd9d954297f17c21dd60).

Comment 4 Miroslav Rezanina 2014-11-13 09:06:31 UTC
Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-8.el7

Comment 6 Jun Li 2014-11-21 05:16:32 UTC
Version of components:

# rpm -ql qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-8.el7.x86_64 --changelog |grep 1152901
- kvm-block-curl-Improve-type-safety-of-s-timeout.patch [bz#1152901]
- Resolves: bz#1152901
Also checked the qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-8.el7.src.rpm. Decompress this rpm. Could find the same patch code(https://github.com/stefanha/qemu/commit/f76faeda4bd59f972d09dd9d954297f17c21dd60) in file ./kvm-block-curl-Improve-type-safety-of-s-timeout.patch

Based on above show, this bz has been verified.

# rpm -ql qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-1.el7.x86_64 --changelog|grep 1152901
No output.

So reproduced it.
Hi Richard,

  As you have mentioned in comment 2, does above verify method is correct or not? Thanks.

Best Regards,
Jun Li

Comment 7 Richard W.M. Jones 2014-11-21 09:18:10 UTC
Yes that's fine.

We didn't actually demonstrate a bug.  It probably only affects
big endian systems.
