Doc Text:
Cause: Improperly logged error message when migrating with memory hotplug enabled. Consequence: When migrating with memory hotplug enabled the destination host logged a spurious message saying "unsupported migration cookie feature memory-hotplug". This didn't break migration but in cases where the migration would fail for some other reason this would sidetrack from the real cause of the failure. Fix: The error message is suppressed by correctly parsing the migration cookie flags. Result:

Reproduce this bug with build:

1.Prepare two hosts for migration;

2.Configure the libvirtd.conf as below and restart libvirtd service on the destination host:
  #cat /etc/libvirt/libvirtd.conf

  #service libvirtd restart

2.Prepare a guest with <maxMemory> set:
 #virsh dumpxml rhel7
  <maxMemory slots='16' unit='KiB'>152429568</maxMemory>
      <cell id='0' cpus='0-3' memory='512000' unit='KiB'/>
      <cell id='1' cpus='4-7' memory='512000' unit='KiB'/>

3.Do migration:
  #virsh migrate rhel7 qemu+ssh:// --live

4.Check the libvirtd.log on the destination host, could see the error "unsupported migration cookie feature memory-hotplug", so the bug reproduced.
  #tailf /var/log/libvirt/libvirtd.log
2015-11-24 03:21:21.383+0000: 12735: error : qemuMigrationCookieXMLParse:1224 : internal error: Unsupported migration cookie feature memory-hotplug

Verify this bug with build:

1.Re-execute step 1-3 in reproduce steps

2.Re-check the libvirtd.log on the destination host, could not see the error "unsupported migration cookie feature memory-hotplug".

According to upper steps, mark this bug verified.
