Description Michael S. Tsirkin 2010-06-14 12:27:12 UTC
I am using qemu with both tap and slirp (userspace) networking.
This works fine under 2.6.35-rc2 but breaks under 2.6.35-rc3:
ssh over slirp stops working sometimes right away
and sometimes after a bit of use.

Git bisect gave me this commit: 597a264b1a9c7e36d1728f677c66c5c1f7e3b837.

Reverting 597a264b1a9c7e36d1728f677c66c5c1f7e3b837 fixes the issue
for me.

Comment 6 Rafael J. Wysocki 2010-06-14 14:01:29 UTC
A couple of notes.  First, the title of your report is meaningless (at least,
please say _what_ regression).  Second, providing a commit hash alone is not
really helpful.  Finally, this probably is a duplicate.
