c#2 summary

What is the target release?

  Flag set = 6.0.0? 

  Target release = 5.5

  In the description = 
   "Backport Intel watchdog emulation in upstream qemu to 5.4 kvm"

Comment 6 Dor Laor 2009-10-25 09:57:50 UTC
btw: isn't this device fully upstream in qemu 0.12? If that's the case, then it will just work out of the box.

Comment 7 Richard W.M. Jones 2009-10-26 16:51:34 UTC
Dor is correct that it's upstream in qemu for a very
long time.

It's also now in libvirt 0.7.3, so you can add watchdogs
to your guests by doing:

  <watchdog model='i6300esb' />

(See: http://libvirt.org/formatdomain.html#elementsWatchdog)

I'm not sure if IBM require the libvirt functionality
as well.  We may need to backport this if so.

Comment 10 releng-rhel@redhat.com 2010-11-11 14:54:44 UTC
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.0 is now available and should resolve
the problem described in this bug report. This report is therefore being closed
with a resolution of CURRENTRELEASE. You may reopen this bug report if the
solution does not work for you.
