The QEMU project is currently considering to move its bug tracking to another
system. For this we need to know which bugs are still valid and which could be
closed already. Thus we are setting older bugs to "Incomplete" now.
If you still think this bug report here is valid, then please switch the state
back to "New" within the next 60 days, otherwise this report will be marked as
"Expired". Or mark it as "Fix Released" if the problem has been solved with a
newer version of QEMU already. Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

Unable to migrate vhost-net to virtio-1.0-capable kernel
Status in QEMU:
I am running QEMU 2.11 (from upstream source, not Red Hat package) on
stock RHEL 6 and RHEL 7 kernels. Only the RHEL 7 kernel supports
VIRTIO_F_VERSION_1 in its vhost-net driver.
When migrating a guest using vhost-net from the RHEL 6 host to RHEL 7,
the PCI config is rejected by QEMU on the target machine.
A simple test case:
1. On the RHEL 7 host, prepare for an incoming migration:
rhel7# qemu-system-x86_64 -S -accel kvm -nographic -monitor stdio
-nodefaults -netdev tap,id=net0,vhost=on,script=no,downscript=no
-device virtio-net-pci,netdev=net0,mac=54:52:00:ff:ff:ff -incoming
2. On the RHEL 6 host, start a guest and migrate it to the RHEL 7
rhel6# qemu-system-x86_64 -S -accel kvm -nographic -monitor stdio
-nodefaults -netdev tap,id=net0,vhost=on,script=no,downscript=no -device
QEMU 2.11.0 monitor - type 'help' for more information
(qemu) migrate tcp:rhel7:12345
The RHEL 7 QEMU errors out:
qemu-system-x86_64: get_pci_config_device: Bad config data: i=0x20 read: 0
device: c cmask: ff wmask: 0 w1cmask:0
qemu-system-x86_64: Failed to load PCIDevice:config
qemu-system-x86_64: Failed to load virtio-net:virtio
qemu-system-x86_64: error while loading state for instance 0x0 of device
qemu-system-x86_64: load of migration failed: Invalid argument
If I start the source QEMU with vhost=off, or the target QEMU with
disable-modern=true, the migration is successful.
My hunch here is that the target QEMU prepares the PCI device to
support VIRTIO_F_VERSION_1, as that's available in the kernel there,
but then fails to (or does not know to) disable this during the
