[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] pc_init: Fail on bad kernel

From: Sasha Levin
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH] pc_init: Fail on bad kernel
Date: Sat, 3 Sep 2011 22:35:43 +0300

When providing QEMU with a bad '-kernel' parameter, such as a file which
is not really a kernel, QEMU will attempt to allocate a huge amount of
memory and fail either with "Failed to allocate memory: Cannot allocate
memory" or a GLib error: "GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:170: failed to allocate
18446744073709529965 bytes"

This patch handles the case where the magic sig wasn't located in the
provided kernel, and loading it as multiboot failed as well.
