Description Amit Shah 2012-04-25 05:28:56 EDT
Description of problem:

After a guest is resumed from s3 or s4, an open port in the guest stops receiving data from host.

For example:

(host) nc -U /tmp/foo
(guest) cat /dev/vport0p1
(host) send some data; they will appear in guest terminal

<enter s4 state>

(host) send some data, they will not appear in guest terminal

Expected case is for data to start appearing in guest terminal after restore.

This behaviour will be exhibited only after bug 787974 is fixed.  That is because qemu wrongly marked all guest-side connections open before that bug was fixed.  With that bug fixed, this is exposed.

Comment 6 Chao Yang 2012-05-11 01:33:56 EDT
I have reproduced this issue on kernel-2.6.32-268.el6, qemu-kvm-292.

Steps: Exactly the same as in Description. Both S3 and S4 have this issue on vport0p1 and vport0p2. After resume, guest cannot receive data sent by host.

Verified on kernel-2.6.32-270.el6, qemu-kvm-292. After resume from S3 and S4, guest can receive data sent by host.

As per above, this issue has been fixed correctly.
