Comment 7 Qunfang Zhang 2012-10-22 01:52:32 EDT
Reproduced this issue on qemu-kvm- and qemu-kvm-rhev-, and verified pass on qemu-kvm- and qemu-kvm-rhev-

1. Install a Fedora 17 guest with pty console chardev.

# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm  -m 2048 -smp 1,sockets=1,cores=1,threads=1 -enable-kvm -name fedora17-67 -uuid 11caa689-717d-4851-9800-908a55ee7d98 -k en-us -rtc base=localtime,driftfix=slew -device piix3-usb-uhci,id=usb,bus=pci.0,addr=0x1.0x2 -device usb-tablet,id=input0 -drive file=/home/fedoar17-64.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio-disk0,format=qcow2,serial=koTUXQrb,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop,aio=native -device virtio-blk-pci,scsi=off,bus=pci.0,addr=0x4,drive=drive-virtio-disk0,id=virtio-disk0 -drive file=/home/boot.iso,if=none,media=cdrom,id=drive-ide0-1-0,readonly=on,format=raw -device ide-drive,bus=ide.1,unit=0,drive=drive-ide0-1-0,id=ide0-1-0 -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=hostnet0,id=net0,mac=00:10:40:72:12:1b,bus=pci.0,addr=0x5 -monitor stdio -qmp tcp:0:6667,server,nowait -device virtio-balloon-pci,id=balloon0,bus=pci.0,addr=0x6 -device virtio-serial-pci,id=virtio-serial0,max_ports=16,vectors=4,bus=pci.0,addr=0x7 -chardev pty,id=channel0 -device virtconsole,bus=virtio-serial0.0,chardev=channel0,name=org.fedoraproject.console.foo,id=console1,nr=1 -vnc :11 -boot dc

In the unfixed version qemu-kvm(-rhev)-, guest hangs at the beginning of installation, and consume 100% cpu. 
In the fixed version qemu-kvm(-rhev)-, guest doesn't hang and proceed the installation until finished.

And also tried the unix socket (instead the problematic pty), guest doesn't hang during installation in both fixed and unfixed version.

So this bug is verified pass.
