Description PJ Waskiewicz 2013-07-03 23:57:12 UTC
Description of problem: Stopping a virtual machine (Win7) running with qemu-kvm by either shutting down the guest or saving state to disk causes a kernel panic.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):  Kernel 3.9.8-300.fc19.x86_64, qemu version qemu-kvm-1.4.2-4.fc19.x86_64

How reproducible: 100% of the time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure a VM with a Virtual NAT network interface
2. Start the VM
3. Shut down the guest OS

Actual results: Host kernel panics, see backtrace below (I also have the whole vmcore of the crash if desired).

Expected results: VM shutdown should not crash the host kernel

Additional info: Tested with Linus' latest linux tree (commit 76f7a102c0290d3e24703b6cd3716d5a594d6173) and confirmed the bug is gone.

Kernel backtrace of the crash (collected via kdump):

Comment 1 Maxim Burgerhout 2013-07-04 11:16:59 UTC
Confirmed with identical backtrace, also concerning a Windows 7 VM. 

Bug does not occur when I boot my machine with kernel 3.9.6-301.fc19.x86_64.

Comment 2 Josh Boyer 2013-07-05 12:28:41 UTC
Fallout for bug 880035.  Should have a fix later today.
