Description Min Deng 2015-12-16 03:59:11 EST
Description of problem:
Changing CPU's current status failed via qmp command  

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

How reproducible:
3 times

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot up guest with the following cli
  /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -name virt-tests-vm1 -sandbox off -machine pseries -nodefaults -vga std -chardev socket,id=hmp_id_humanmonitor1,path=/tmp/monitor-humanmonitor1-20151216-023305-yiSWzYp2,server,nowait -mon chardev=hmp_id_humanmonitor1,mode=readline -chardev socket,id=qmp_id_qmp1,path=/tmp/monitor-qmp1-20151216-023305-yiSWzYp2,server,nowait -mon chardev=qmp_id_qmp1,mode=control -chardev socket,id=hmp_id_catch_monitor,path=/tmp/monitor-catch_monitor-20151216-023305-yiSWzYp2,server,nowait -mon chardev=hmp_id_catch_monitor,mode=readline -chardev socket,id=serial_id_serial0,path=/tmp/serial-serial0-20151216-023305-yiSWzYp2,server,nowait -device spapr-vty,reg=0x30000000,chardev=serial_id_serial0 -device pci-ohci,id=usb1,bus=pci.0,addr=03 -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=virtio_scsi_pci0,bus=pci.0,addr=04,disable-legacy=off,disable-modern=on -drive id=drive_image1,if=none,cache=none,snapshot=off,aio=native,format=qcow2,file=/home/auto/autotest/client/tests/virt/shared/data/images/RHEL-Server-7.2-ppc64le-virtio-scsi.qcow2 -device scsi-hd,id=image1,drive=drive_image1 -m 4096 -smp 2,maxcpus=2,cores=1,threads=1,sockets=2 -device usb-tablet,id=usb-tablet1,bus=usb1.0,port=1 -vnc :0 -rtc base=utc,clock=host -boot order=cdn,once=c,menu=off,strict=off -enable-kvm -monitor stdio

2.connect to guest via qmp

{"return": {}}

 {"return": [{"current": true, "CPU": 0, "nip": -4611686018426779980, "halted": false, "thread_id": 7982}, {"current": false, "CPU": 1, "nip": -4611686018426779980, "halted": false, "thread_id": 7983}]}

c.{'execute': 'cpu', 'arguments': {'index': 1}, 'id': 'r8nM0rzA'}
{"return": {}, "id": "r8nM0rzA"}

{"return": [{"current": true, "CPU": 0, "nip": -4611686018426779980, "halted": false, "thread_id": 7982}, {"current": false, "CPU": 1, "nip": -4611686018426779980, "halted": false, "thread_id": 7983}]}

Actual results:
The current status of #1 cpu should be true but still false and #0 cpu should become to false correspondingly.

Expected results:
After step c,the #1 cpu current status could become True and #0 cpu could become to false

Additional info:
It isn't reproduced via HMP

Comment 2 Markus Armbruster 2016-07-21 13:10:49 EDT
"Current CPU" is monitor-local, i.e. if you have multiple monitors,
each has its own current CPU.  Only HMP monitors have a current CPU.
QMP command "cpu" actually does nothing, and command "query-cpus"
always shows CPU #0 as current.  Actually an implementation artifact
that shouldn't be relied on; member "current" exists only for backward
compatibility, and should be ignored.  This mess is due to some
confused QMP development history, and can't be changed now.

Closing NOTABUG.  Please don't hesitate to ask if you have further

when change the cpu in hmp.
