Description of problem:
pass through fails with KVM using Neterion Inc's X3100 Series 10GbE PCIe I/O
Virtualized Server Adapter in Multifunction mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Redhat 5.5 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Redhat 5.5 as VM on a host system which also has redhat 5.5
2. Shutdown VM.
2. Export one of the function of Neterion Inc's X3100 Series 10GbE PCIe I/O
Virtualized Server Adapter in Multifunction mode as pass through to the VM.
3. boot the VM.
  
Actual results:
1) I am able to see the exported device on VM through lspci. When do insmod, I am getting following error message in the log file of vm.
[root@Jelly ~]# tail -f /var/log/libvirt/qemu/redhat55.log
BUG: kvm_destroy_phys_mem: invalid parameters (slot=-1)
BUG: kvm_destroy_phys_mem: invalid parameters (slot=-1)
BUG: kvm_destroy_phys_mem: invalid parameters (slot=-1)

2) Then when I try to bring up the interface, the VM shutdown itself.

We have fixed some bugs in PCI assignment code in libvirt recently, could you test if using the latest development packages makes this any better? You can find the libvirt packages at http://people.redhat.com/jdenemar/libvirt/

Comment 6 Larry Troan 2010-11-21 20:55:25 UTC
Unresolved issues with this NIC upstream and in RHEL6 per Enigneering.
Too late for 5.6. Pushing to 5.7.

I verified that the issue is still happening on redhat 5.6 snapshot3. The details as follow:

The libvirt version :

[root@Nemo qemu]# rpm -qa | grep libvirt

Comment 14 Alex Williamson 2011-07-27 16:40:36 UTC
The changes required to support this are too intrusive for RHEL5.  This has been fixed and does now work in RHEL6.1.
