  Migration fails with larger guests (e.g. 10GB)  on a z system prints an error 
message in the log 

  see /var/log/libvirt/qemu/...
  qemu-system-s390x: KVM_S390_SET_CMMA_BITS failed: Bad address

  This messes up guest state for the CMMA values (guest data corruption)

  This is fixed with

      s390x: fix storage attributes migration for non-small guests
      Fix storage attribute migration so that it does not fail for guests
      with more than a few GB of RAM.
      With such guests, the index in the buffer would go out of bounds,
      usually by large amounts, thus receiving -EFAULT from the kernel.
      Migration itself would be successful, but storage attributes would then
      not be migrated completely.
      This patch fixes the out of bounds access, and thus migration of all
      storage attributes when the guest have large amounts of memory.

  This fix is part of 2.11.1 so the qemu in bionic is fine.
  The qemu in artful, as well as the qemu in the cloud archives for 16.04 need 
this fix, so we have
  affected qemus in 17.10 and 16.04. 

  Regarding 16.04:
  The bug only triggers for host kernels >= 4.13 - in other words when you 
combine HWE kernel with the qemu from the cloud archive.
