Description of problem:
I get a complete lockup when launching a qemu/kvm Vm with kernel-4.4.0-0.rc3.git3.2.fc24.x86_64 and I don't get the same lockup with kernel-4.4.0-0.rc2.git0.1.fc24.x86_64

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch Vm with VGA passthrough
I don't know if the fact that it's using VGA passthrough is relevant.

I'm not very comfortable constantly locking up the machine so I'm not sure how to help figure out what's happening. I ran the machine with the debug kernel but I didn't see anything in the logs.

I compiled a kernel without CONFIG_X86_INTEL_MPX since that was the only config difference I could see in the new kernel but the lockup actually happened before launching the VM, right after opening up the "Activities" view in Gnome and clicking Show applications with that kernel.

One thing I have noticed when using the WORKING kernel is the following warning in libvirt's logs when starting the VM
"ehci warning: guest updated active QH"

I don't think I've seen that in the logs when using the kernel that hangs the machine

This is the libvirt/qemu log when the lockup occurs

I understand that I haven't given you much to go on but thought I'd file it anyway.

I'll add that I have seen "kernel: kvm: zapping shadow pages for mmio generation wraparound" xlose to the end of 2 of the lockups, but not all of them.
Comment 2 sorasl 2015-12-12 11:27:11 EST
The VM with Vga Passthrough boots fine with kernel-4.4.0-0.rc4.git3.2.fc24.x86_64
