Please always include the full command line you're using to call qemu (if you're using libvirt, you can get it with "ps auxw")

Sorry, here is my full command line.

Comment 5 Ademar Reis 2012-04-17 16:23:18 EDT
Corner case on a tech-preview feature, deferring to RHEL6.4
Comment 7 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 03:16:34 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 8 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 22:05:30 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
