Description of problem:
If you'll start up kvm based guest with dual monitors RHEL 6 (the guest) will recognize only one display.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xorg-x11-drv-qxl-0.0.12-2.1.el6.x86_64 (on guest)
kernel-2.6.32-52.el6.x86_64 (on guest)
qemu-kvm-0.12.1.2-2.96.el6.x86_64 (on host)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -vga qxl -device qxl -m 1024 -spice port=3001,disable-ticketing -usbdevice tablet <rhel5_guest>.img
2./usr/libexec/spicec --host localhost --port 3001
3. xrandr after boot
Only one display is recognized
Two displays should be recognized.
Works the same when the hypervisor is 5.5 and qemu-kvm is launched with -qxl 2 argument.
