Cause: vhost_net does not have the feature of mergeable buffer. Consequence: Migrate a guest from src with userspace backend to a dest with vhost_net backend would break. Fix: Add the support of mergeable buffer support to vhost_net. Result: Migrate between userspace virtio-net and vhost_net backend would not fail.

Description Michael S. Tsirkin 2010-07-21 00:53:38 EDT
Description of problem:
vhost transparently disables mergeable buffers flag.
This causes migration to fail if it is attempted between
systems with/without this flag set.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
qemu-kvm-0.12.1.2-2.90.el6.x86_64

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. on system A remove vhost_net module
2. on system B leave it in
3. start qemu with virtio-net
4. attempt migration B->A
  
Actual results:
migration fails

Expected results:
migration passes
