Summary: KVM: Cannot start SMP guests
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.3
Version: Milestone 4
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.3
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.0.15)
Gecko/2009102704 Fedora/3.0.15-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.15

When I try to start a KVM guest with SMP configuration on openSUSE 11.3
Milestone 4, the guest is getting started properly. After that it just sits
there and doesn't even start the SeaBIOS.

Using the exact same configuration in a UP setup succeeds.

I tried this on two different hardware platforms. The problem does also exist
with Factory (kvm-0.12.2-3.8.x86_64).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Failing example:
/usr/bin/qemu-kvm \
-name 001-kernbench \
-k de \
-vnc :0 \
-usbdevice tablet \
-daemonize \
-monitor pty \
-serial file:/tmp/guest1.fifo \
-drive file=/xen/images/opensuse_11_3_m4_64b_raw.img,if=ide,index=0 \
-drive file=/xen/images/001-kernbench.img,if=ide,index=1 \
-net nic,macaddr=52:54:00:0F:7E:01 -net tap,ifname=tap0 \
-m 2560 \
-smp 5

And this is working:
/usr/bin/qemu-kvm \
-name 001-kernbench \
-k de \
-vnc :0 \
-usbdevice tablet \
-daemonize \
-monitor pty \
-serial file:/tmp/guest1.fifo \
-drive file=/xen/images/opensuse_11_3_m4_64b_raw.img,if=ide,index=0 \
-drive file=/xen/images/001-kernbench.img,if=ide,index=1 \
-net nic,macaddr=52:54:00:0F:7E:01 -net tap,ifname=tap0 \
-m 2560 \
-smp 1
