Description Haruka Iwao 2015-04-18 08:07:54 UTC
Description of problem:

As bug 1182650 says, Haswell and Broadwell processors are patched to disable TSX instructions according to erratum released by Intel. This introduces VM incompatibility between Haswell processors with TSX and without TSX when explicitly specified as cpumodel='Haswell'. The upstream qemu introduced new cpu models, Haswell-noTSX and Broadwell-noTSX namely to address this issue.
Bug 1182650 fixes the problem in the libvirt part. This bug intends to address qemu.
