Fixed In Version: qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-15.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When a guest virtual machine was configured as a vhost-user server and the back end was restarted, the guest was not able to recover. With this update, the back end is able to discard the SET_VRING_BASE value and resume from index. This allows the guest to recover successfully in the described scenario.

Description Pei Zhang 2016-07-09 12:13:07 UTC
Description of problem:
Boot guest with vhostuser server mode, QEMU prompt 'Segmentation fault' after executing '(qemu)system_powerdown'. 

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a slirp/vlan in a background process
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm \
-net none \
-net socket,vlan=0,udp=localhost:4444,localaddr=localhost:5555 \
-net user,vlan=0

2. Start qemu with vhost-user as server mode
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm  -m 1024 -smp 2 \
-object memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=1024M,mem-path=/dev/hugepages,share=on \
-numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc \
-chardev socket,id=char0,path=/tmp/vubr.sock,server \
-netdev type=vhost-user,id=mynet1,chardev=char0,vhostforce \
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=mynet1,mac=54:52:00:1a:2c:01 \
/home/pezhang/rhel7.3.qcow2 \
-monitor stdio \
-vga std -vnc :10 \

QEMU waiting for connection on: disconnected:unix:/tmp/vubr.sock,server

3. Start vubr as vhostuser client
# ./vhost-user-bridge -c

4. After guest boot up, shutdown it. Qemu will prompt error info.
(qemu) system_powerdown 
(qemu) Segmentation fault

Actual results:
Qemu doesn't quit well.

Expected results:
Qemu should quit correctly without any error info.

Additional info:
1. gdb info
(qemu) system_powerdown 
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.6.0-15.el7

Comment 10 Pei Zhang 2016-07-22 09:59:48 UTC

1. Run a slirp/vlan in a background process
2. Start qemu with vhost-user as server mode
3. Start vubr as vhostuser client
(Step1~3 have same commands and results as Description)

4. After guest boot up, shutdown it. Qemu quit well.
(qemu) system_powerdown 
in guest:
# shutdown -h now

So this bug has been fixed well. Thank you.
