Known issues

Please list all patch series or bugs which need to be fixed for the release here. That way I can be sure I don't miss any when I'm rolling release candidates.

Still unfixed

Fixed in rc4

  • crash on migration if virtio-9p device was hot-unplugged
  • MAINTAINERS update for virtio-9p
  • Update translation files with `make -C po update` and commit the result.
  • xbzrle migration crash/corruption (see Fix xbzrle vs last_sent_block update)
  • mark blockdev-{insert,remove}-medium as experimental

Fixed in rc3

Fixed in rc0

  • netmap.c compile failures
  • Mac OS 9 compatibility improvements (upstream rework)
  • fix Highbank model by adding board setup blob
  • migration: fix script
  • revert of VHOST_RESET_DEVICE change
  • bugs in ARM gdbstub singlestep and breakpoint handling
  • configure barfs if there's no c++ compiler (fortify-source test is assuming $cxx is defined)
  • Zynq ADC controller
  • migration doesn't work on OSX (migrate_init zeroes out the mutex)
  • migration/ram.c 32-bit compile fixes
