Comment 1 Alex Williamson 2011-02-16 16:43:26 UTC
This will be fixed with the 2.6.38-rc5 merge of kvm.git.  Commit 47970b1b was bad and later reverted in f00eaeea.  A corrected version was added in 683034fca.
Comment 2 Jay Ren 2011-03-04 02:28:49 UTC
This bug has been verified. It's OK with b35049715 kvm.git.
