Description of problem:
Define a guest with floppy disk then start the guest,the floppy disk can't be discoverd by the guest.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Virsh define the guest with the following xml
 virsh dumpxml nfs_test
<domain type='kvm' id='17'>
    <type arch='x86_64' machine='rhel5.6.0'>hvm</type>
    <boot dev='hd'/>
  <clock offset='utc'>
    <timer name='pit' tickpolicy='delay'/>
    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/nfs_test.img'/>
      <target dev='vda' bus='virtio'/>
      <alias name='virtio0'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x05' function='0x0'/>
    <disk type='file' device='floppy'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/fd.img'/>
      <target dev='fda' bus='fdc'/>
      <alias name='floppy0'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='0' bus='0' unit='0'/>
    <controller type='fdc' index='0'/>
    <interface type='network'>
      <mac address='52:54:00:8e:ec:a8'/>
      <source network='default'/>
      <target dev='vnet0'/>
      <model type='e1000'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x03' function='0x0'/>
    <serial type='pty'>
      <source path='/dev/pts/1'/>
      <target port='0'/>
    <console type='pty' tty='/dev/pts/1'>
      <source path='/dev/pts/1'/>
      <target port='0'/>
    <input type='mouse' bus='ps2'/>
    <graphics type='vnc' port='5900' autoport='yes' keymap='en-us'/>
    <sound model='ac97'>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x04' function='0x0'/>
      <model type='cirrus' vram='9216' heads='1'/>
      <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x00' slot='0x02' function='0x0'/>
  <seclabel type='dynamic' model='selinux'>

2.Virsh start the guest
3.In the guest run fdisk -l and cat /proc/partitions

Actual results:
The floppy disk can't be discoverd.

Expected results:

Additional info:
Look at the log /var/log/libvirt/qemu/nfs_test.log

Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2011-04-08 05:45:33 EDT
What is the guest kernel, and more importantly, does it have the 'floppy' kernel module loaded ?
Comment 2 koka xiong 2011-04-08 05:54:26 EDT
Guest kernel is 2.6.32-71.el6.x86_64
After running #modprobe floppy;
then run lsmod |grep floppy,we can get the floppy mod
but run fdisk -l,still can't find the floppy
