Description of problem:
When boot a RHEL7.2 64 bit guest the mouse in guest disappears, but after opening an application (e.g. terminal) the mouse could appear.
When boot a RHEL7.0 guest the mouse works well in guest.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot a guest with the following qemu command:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -M q35 \
-m 4G -cpu Opteron_G3,check -smp 4,sockets=4,cores=1,threads=1,maxcpus=4 -enable-kvm -spice port=5931,disable-ticketing -monitor stdio -qmp tcp:0:6666,server,nowait -boot menu=on,reboot-timeout=8,strict=on \
-device ich9-usb-ehci1,id=usb,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x5.0x7 -device ich9-usb-uhci1,masterbus=usb.0,firstport=0,bus=pcie.0,multifunction=on,addr=0x5 -device ich9-usb-uhci2,masterbus=usb.0,firstport=2,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x5.0x1 -device ich9-usb-uhci3,masterbus=usb.0,firstport=4,bus=pcie.0,addr=0x5.0x2 \
-drive file=/home/,RHEL-Server-7.2-64-virtio-scsi.qcow2if=none,id=drive-data-disk1,cache=writethrough,format=qcow2,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device usb-storage,drive=drive-data-disk1,id=usb-0-0,removable=on
2.check the mouse in guest
The mouse in guest disappears, but after opening an application(e.g. terminal) the mouse could appear.
The mouse does not disappear.
Guest bug. modesetting driver most likely. Saw that with fedora guests too. Cursor isn't there initially, but shows up on the first shape change (when moving over the gdm password field for example).
Note: qemu stdvga has no hardware cursor support, might be the trigger for this bug.
Reassign to xorg-x11-server, which has replaced -modesetting in 7.2.
7.2 modesetting driver needs patches merged from the old packaging, devel ack.
