[Qemu-devel] QEMU terminates during reboot after memory unplug with vhos

QEMU hits the below assert

qemu-system-ppc64: used ring relocated for ring 2
qemu-system-ppc64: qemu/hw/virtio/vhost.c:649: vhost_commit: Assertion `r >= 0' 

in the following scenario:

1. Boot guest with vhost=on
  -netdev tap,id=mynet0,script=qemu-ifup,downscript=qemu-ifdown,vhost=on 
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=mynet0
2. Hot add a DIMM device 
3. Reboot
   When the guest reboots, we can see
   vhost_virtqueue_start:vq->used_phys getting assigned an address that
   falls in the hotplugged memory range.
4. Remove the DIMM device
   Guest refuses the removal as the hotplugged memory is under use.
5. Reboot
   QEMU forces the removal of the DIMM device during reset and that's
   when we hit the above assert.

Any pointers on why we are hitting this assert ? Shouldn't vhost be
done with using the hotplugged memory when we hit reset ?
