Description Michael S. Tsirkin 2010-07-20 15:48:41 UTC
Description of problem:
publish used feature was revertred upstream,
and discussion is ongoing to make it trigger
layout change that won't be compatible with RHEL.

This will be a big problem with support going forward,
so the right thing for now is to revert this in RHEL6,
as performance gain from it is minor.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2:0.12.1.2-2.90.el6

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rhel6 guest with virtio-net
2. look at features
  
Actual results:
bit 29 should be off

Expected results:
bit 29 is on

Comment 5 Keqin Hong 2010-07-30 07:36:38 UTC
Reproduced in qemu-kvm-0.12.1.2-2.97 and verified in qemu-kvm-0.12.1.2-2.99.

Steps:
1. boot a rhel6 guest with "-netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on"
2. under qemu monitor, execute "info qtree"

Result: publish_used feature is removed
