Description Pavel Raiskup 2012-05-02 09:54:24 EDT

new Coverity rescan found new potential defect in qemu-kvm.  Look at:

    qemu-kvm- at the function mirror_abort()

There is done check for 's' non-null pointer but on the following line there is
direct dereference.  Note that I don't know what is the purpose of these lines
but This check is really suspicious and at least something goes wrong.

List of added defects is attached.

  it will be fixed.  This defect can be not so dangerous and/or not so
