Fixed In Version: qemu-kvm-rhev-2.10.0-1.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Prior to this update, sending the BREAK or PAUSE keys over the VNC or SPICE client was not properly handled and had no effect in the guest. This update adds proper key handlers for these keys, so they trigger appropriate events in the guest. In addition, sending keys for controlling guest audio over VNC or SPICE now works as expected.

Comment 7 Guo, Zhiyi 2017-12-14 02:31:17 EST
Reproduce this issue with qemu-kvm-rhev-2.9.0-16.el7_4.5.x86_64, host & guest kernel 3.10.0-693.5.1.el7.x86_64.

qemu cli used:

        -cpu qemu64,check \
        -smp 2 \
        -vga std \

My keyboards has volume up/volume down/audio next/audio previous/audio stop/audio play/mail/calculator/home keys

1)Login to guest desktop, open gnome-terminal and run xev -event keyboard
2)press the keys I have
3)launch another gnome-terminal and run xinput test keyboard_id
4)repeat step 2)
After 2), no keyevents prompt. After 4), no events prompt.
Switch display to vnc, get same results as spice.

Test against qemu-kvm-rhev-2.10.0-11.el7.x86_64, after 2) xev will prompt some output, because of some keys have no function defined in gnome, just output. 
After 4), the outputs of keys are same after comparing the outputs between host and guest.
Switch display to vnc, I get same results.So bug is fixed
