Description Qian Guo 2013-06-26 02:13:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Boot guest w/ multi-queues nic, if assign option vhostfds, qemu-kvm will quit w/ Segmentation fault (core dumped)  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# uname -r

qemu-kvm version:
# rpm -q qemu-kvm

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce
1.Boot guest w/ multi-queues nic, and assign option vhostfds:
# /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -cpu Penryn -enable-kvm -m 2048 -smp 4.sockets=1,cores=4,threads=1 -name rhel6u3c2 -drive file=/home/rhel7/rhel7.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-scsi0-disk0,format=qcow2,werror=stop,rerror=stop -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi0,addr=0x4 -device scsi-hd,scsi-id=0,lun=0,bus=scsi0.0,drive=drive-scsi0-disk0,id=virtio-disk0 -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,queues=4,vhostfds=21:22:23:34 -device virtio-net-pci,mq=on,vectors=9,netdev=hostnet0,mac=54:52:1b:35:3c:18,id=test -device virtio-balloon-pci,id=balloon0 -vnc :10 -vga std -boot menu=on -monitor stdio -serial unix:/tmp/qiguo1,server,nowait


Actual results:
Segmentation fault (core dumped) 

Expected results:
qemu-kvm should not launch, but print a warning error, not a segmentation fault

Comment 6 Qian Guo 2013-12-30 20:51:56 EST
Reproduced this bug with qemu-kvm-1.5.0-2.el7.x86_64
1.Launch qemu with w/ multi-queues nic, and assign option vhostfds:
/usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -cpu Penryn -enable-kvm -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,queues=4,vhostfds=21:22:23:34 -device virtio-net-pci,mq=on,vectors=9,netdev=hostnet0,mac=54:52:1b:35:3c:18,id=test

Result: qemu coredumpd:

(gdb) bt

#8  0x00005555555c858f in main (argc=<optimized out>, argv=<optimized out>, 
    envp=<optimized out>) at vl.c:4173

So according to above, this bug is reproduced

Verify this bug with qemu-kvm-1.5.3-30.el7.x86_64

Steps as reproducer

Result: can not launch qemu successfully, qemu quit with prompt:
vhostfds= is invalid if fds= wasn't specified
qemu-kvm: -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,vhost=on,script=/etc/qemu-ifup,queues=4,vhostfds=21:22:23:34: Device 'tap' could not be initialized

So according to above, this bug is fixed by qemu-kvm-1.5.3-30.el7.x86_64
