[Qemu-devel] [Bug 1013241] Re: qemu-system-ppc64 hanging occasionally in disk writes

I switched to using virtio-scsi (instead of virtio-blk). This appears to have
this problem, although it brings another problem. I also tried vscsi, which
Therefore I will (not definitively) claim that the problem lies somewhere in
but a workaround seems to be available.

qemu-system-ppc64 hanging occasionally in disk writes
Status in QEMU:
I found last week that qemu-system-ppc64 (from git) hangs occasionally
under load, and I have a reproducer for it now. Unfortunately the
reproducer really takes a long time to run -- usually I can get a hang
in under 12 hours.
Here is the reproducer case:
(1) Verified by one other person (other than me). Happens on both
ppc64 and x86-64 host.
(2) Happens with both Fedora guest kernel 3.3.4-5.fc17.ppc64 and kernel
3.5.0 that I compiled myself. The test case above contains 3.3.4-5.
(3) Seems to be a problem in qemu, not the guest. The reason I think
this is because I tried to capture a backtrace of the hang using
remote gdb, but gdb just hung when trying to connect to qemu
(gdb connects fine before the bug happens).
(4) Judging by guest messages, appears to be happening when writing
to the disk.
