Description Steve 2011-07-02 06:56:16 UTC
Windows Server 2008 R2 KVM guest crashed during boot process.
This situation also occur on other linux based guests.

Bug is in: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/virt/kvm/qemu-kvm.git
not in: git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git.

Qemu-kvm repository checkouted before 9 days works well.

Problem could be in this:

What other Linux guests precisely? None of the Windows and Linux guest I
have around expose this problem.

What is your qemu command line?

Can you bisect which change precisely introduced the regression?

I have more guests typeson the same server:
MS Windows Server 2008 R2 (latest updates)
Ubuntu 11.04 (2.6.38-10-virtual)
Debian wheezy/sid (2.6.38-rc4-git4-vs2.3.0.37-rc4)
Gentoo (2.6.38-gentoo-r7)

Please could you look at it ?

Thank you for your time.
Comment 4 Steve 2011-07-03 01:00:44 UTC
You should have KVM guest with more than 4 GB memory.
Comment 5 Steve 2011-07-05 23:00:47 UTC
I tested reported bug on more servers also with kernel 3.0.0-rc6+ -> same result.

Comment 6 Steve 2011-07-05 23:44:45 UTC
Here is bug (xen-mapcache.c):

void qemu_map_cache_init(void) 
{
->    mapcache->entry = qemu_mallocz(size);

should be:

      mapcache->entry = qemu_mallocz(size*sizeof(MapCacheEntry));

}

Should somebody commit this fix ?

Thank you for your time.
Comment 7 Steve 2011-07-05 23:54:31 UTC
After applying above simple fix all tested guests started & running correctly.
Comment 8 Steve 2011-07-06 11:45:19 UTC
Should someone commit fix from comment #6 solving reported bug ?

Thank you for your time.
