Fixed in rc0

Fixed in rc1

  • Crash with: qemu-system-aarch64 -M integratorcp,accel=qtest -nographic and then at the HMP monitor: device_add bcm2837 followed by device_add corgi-ssp

Fixed in rc2

Fixed in rc3

  • Valgrind complains about uninitialized value here: valgrind -q aarch64-softmmu/qemu-system-aarch64 -M mps2-an505,accel=qtest - fix posted: 2018-07-24 "hw/misc/tz-mpc: Zero the LUT on initialization, not just reset"
  • migration crash with -device hda-duplex - fix posted: 2018-07-24: audio/hda: Fix migration

Fixed in rc4

  • hw/misc/macio: Fix device introspection problems in macio devices
  • sam460ex: Fix PCI interrupts with multiple devices (not a regression)

Not yet fixed in any rc

Issues that will not be fixed

  • monitor: fix oob command leak (patch on ML, regression, but only for monitor OOB mode which is still experimental and disabled by default)
  • RFC: fix megasas leak (patch on ML, may not be a regression)
  • qemu NBD server kills connection on NBD_CMD_BLOCK_STATUS when serving non-sector-aligned file (not a regression)
  • ICMP handling on OSX hosts (not a regression)
  • qemu_kill() gives poor log results when tests fail with core dump (not a regression; debug aid)
  • monitor cleanup dead-locks when connected to a Spice port: "[PATCH] monitor: avoid potential dead-lock when cleaning up" (not a regression)
  • A couple of minor fixes for structured load/stores and rounding cases for SVE will be in 3.0.1
