due to the necessity of having a patched KVM running, I build some new
RPMs. However, only
is important to replace the 'original' one as it's the only package that
contains the patch. I didn't rename the packages, though, hopefully in
order not to break the upgrade path provided to us.
The patch adresses following problem:
'Fix a race condition where qemu finds that there are not enough virtio
ring buffers available and the guest make more buffers available before
qemu can enable notifications.' , the thread startet as 'network
shutdown under heavy load' .
KVM already contains the fix (since February 19th, IIRC), CentOS'
The RPMs can be found here:
