Probably a Hyper-V (hypervisor) bug.
KY, Can you please confirm it, and we will close this RHEL bug
I will let Hashir (our test lead) comment on this. Hashir, it looks like the problem is there in the emulated mode of RHEL 5.9 on our platform and so this is not a PV driver issue (if we can verify this). We would need to potentially file a bug against the hypervisor. Please confirm.
