trivial patch

The problem only shows up with 1GB RAM or more, and happens because highmem was not considered by the virtio-scsi driver.  The fix is trivial, because we already have a scatterlist (i.e. physical addresses of the buffers) and we just need to copy it into the new scatterlist that is handed to virtio.

kernel328 host with scsi-cd
Comment 16 Sibiao Luo 2012-10-12 01:00:18 EDT
Reprocue this issue with the same steps as Comment #0, install guest (RHEL6.3 32bit) using scsi-hd + scsi-cd, but fails.

host info:
# uname -r && rpm -q qemu-kvm
guest info:

1.Create a image. 
# qemu-img create -f qcow2 RHEL6.3-20120613-sluo-x86_64.qcow2 10G
2.install the guest(RHEL6.3 32) using cdrom.
eg:# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -M rhel6.3.0 -enable-kvm -m 4096 -smp 2,sockets=2,cores=1,threads=1 -usb -device usb-tablet,id=input0 -name sluo_test -uuid `uuidgen` -drive file=/home/RHEL6.3-20120613-i386.qcow2,format=qcow2,if=none,id=drive-disk,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi0 -device scsi-hd,drive=drive-disk,scsi-id=0,lun=0,id=scsi_image,bootindex=2 -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,script=/etc/qemu-ifup -device e1000,netdev=hostnet0,id=virtio-net-pci0,mac=05:1a:4a:02:0b:11,bus=pci.0,bootindex=3 -device virtio-balloon-pci,id=balloon0,bus=pci.0 -vnc :1 -boot menu=on -monitor stdio -drive file=/home/RHEL6.3-20120613.2-Server-i386-DVD1.iso,if=none,media=cdrom,cache=none,werror=stop,format=raw,id=cd -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi1 -device scsi-cd,drive=cd,id=scsi_cd,bootindex=1

fail to install rhel6.3 32bit guest with 'exec of anaconda failed: Input/output error'. please see attachment 625771 [details] for details.


Verify this issue with the same steps as Comment #0, install guest (RHEL6.3 32bit) using scsi-hd + scsi-cd.

host ifno:
# uname -r && rpm -q qemu-kvm
guest info:

the same as reproduce.
eg:...-drive file=/home/RHEL6.4-20121011.n.0-Server-i386-DVD1.iso,if=none,media=cdrom,cache=none,werror=stop,format=raw,id=cd -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi1 -device scsi-cd,drive=cd,id=scsi_cd,bootindex=1 -drive file=/home/RHEL6.4-20121011.n.0-sluo-i386.qcow2,format=qcow2,if=none,id=drive-disk,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi0 -device scsi-hd,drive=drive-disk,scsi-id=0,lun=0,id=scsi_image,bootindex=2

finish install RHEL6.4-20121011.n.0-Server-i386 guest successfully and reboot guest correctly.

Base on above, this issue has been fixed correctly.

Best Regards.
