Description David Gibson 2018-01-18 01:44:47 UTC
Description of problem:

The fix for bug 1528234 unfortunately introduced a different regression.  The compatibility modes for hotplugged CPUs are now set correctly in the hardware.  However, the device tree entries for non-boot cpus no longer correctly advertise their compatibility mode in the device tree.

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


How reproducible:


Precised reproducer steps coming...

Comment 3 David Gibson 2018-01-18 02:21:36 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
   1. Start a guest with:

 $QEMU -name bz1535752 -nographic -vga none -nodefaults \
	-machine pseries,accel=kvm,max-cpu-compat=power8 \
	-smp 2 \
	-m 2048 -cpu host -enable-kvm \
	-chardev stdio,id=conmon,mux=on,signal=off -mon conmon -device spapr-vty,chardev=conmon \
	-drive file=$DIR/disk.qcow2,if=none,id=hd0 \
	-device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi \
	-device scsi-hd,bus=scsi.0,drive=hd0 \
	-netdev tap,id=hostnet0,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,downscript=/etc/qemu-ifdown \
	-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=hostnet0 \

    2. In the guest run:

$ lsprop lsprop /proc/device-tree/cpus/PowerPC\,POWER9\@*/cpu-version

Actual results:

		 0f000004 (251658244)
		 004e1200 (5116416)

Expected results:

		 0f000004 (251658244)
		 0f000004 (251658244)

Comment 4 David Gibson 2018-01-18 02:22:59 UTC
Greg Kurz has some upstream patches for this which I am reviewing.

Comment 5 David Gibson 2018-01-18 04:07:46 UTC
I've reviewed and merged Greg's relevant patch, it should go into my next pull request.

Comment 8 Miroslav Rezanina 2018-01-23 13:01:05 UTC
Fix included in qemu-kvm-rhev-2.10.0-18.el7

Comment 10 Xujun Ma 2018-01-25 06:17:17 UTC
Reproduced this bug:
test env:

1.Boot up a P8-compat guest on power9 host:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm \
 -vga std \
 -smp 2 \
 -m 20480\
 -vnc :9 \
 -nographic \
 -device qemu-xhci,id=xhci \
 -device usb-kbd,id=kbd \
 -device usb-tablet,id=tablet \
 -device virtio-scsi-pci,bus=pci.0 \
 -device scsi-hd,id=scsi-hd0,drive=scsi-hd0-dr0,bootindex=0 \
 -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net0,id=nic0,mac=52:54:00:c4:e7:84 \
 -netdev tap,id=net0,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,downscript=/etc/qemu-ifdown,vhost=on \
 -drive file=rhel75-ppc64le-virtio-scsi.qcow2,if=none,id=scsi-hd0-dr0,format=qcow2,cache=none \
 -machine pseries,max-cpu-compat=power8 \
 -chardev socket,path=monitor,id=vty,server,nowait,signal=off \
 -mon chardev=vty,mode=readline \
2.Check compatibility modes of non-boot cpus from device tree in guest
#lsprop /proc/device-tree/cpus/PowerPC\,POWER9\@*/cpu-version

Actual results:
		 0f000004 (251658244)
		 004e1200 (5116416)

Verified this bug:
test env:

The same as steps to reproduce.

Actual results:
		 0f000004 (251658244)
		 0f000004 (251658244)

Base the results above,set status to verified.
