We need a new power machine-type for RHEL-7.4: pseries-rhel7.4.0
A prerequisite of the machine-type is the backport of the following patch otherwise pseries-7.3.0 is broken:
16a2497 target-ppc: Fix CPU migration from qemu-2.6 <-> later versions
[from ppc-for-2.8 branch]
Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.8.0-2.el7
Verified the pseries-rhel7.4.0 machine type is already added and currently we are executing functional test for all the kvm features with pseries-rhel7.4.0 machine type except forward/backward migration (which requires older machine types). So, I'll verity the bug.
# rpm -q qemu-kvm-rhev
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -M ?
Supported machines are:
none empty machine
pseries-rhel7.2.0 pSeries Logical Partition (PAPR compliant)
pseries-rhel7.3.0 pSeries Logical Partition (PAPR compliant)
pseries pSeries Logical Partition (PAPR compliant) (alias of pseries-rhel7.4.0)
pseries-rhel7.4.0 pSeries Logical Partition (PAPR compliant) (default)
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -M pseries-rhel7.4.0
