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.

Fixed in rc5

  • Compile failure in bsd-user
  • virtio bugs with vq->inuse counts
  • 9pfs filename sanitization
  • crash with gdb server
  • net socket connect broken

Fixed in rc4

  • commit 9c37146782e785 accidentally disabled a lot of the linux-user netlink support code, because the headers don't define IFLA_BR_* and IFLA_BRPORT_* as C preprocessor constants, so #ifdef IFLA_BRPORT_ID etc don't do what you might hope
  • test-logging testcase leaves a lot of logfiles in /tmp/

Fixed in rc3

Fixed in rc2

wxx: Truncate files used for character devices

Will not be fixed for 2.7

  • trying to attach a vhost-user device causes a segfault -- this is not a regression (was present in 2.6), so we'll fix it in 2.8
  • virtio balloon bug of some description??
  • doesn't build on Windows with older glib versions
  • PPC regression on prep ?
