------- Comment #3 from andre.przywara@xxxxxxx  2009-05-15 06:43 -------
We can reproduce this with qcow images only. The problem is occuring only with
empty images (newly created with qemu-img create). Already (partly) populated
images are not affected. The problem can be reproduced with
xm block-attach 0 tap:qcow://path/to/empty.qcow /dev/xvda1 r 0
It seems like the initialization of a new blktap device fails. The only
difference in xend.log is: empty qcow image (failing):
DEBUG (DevController:643) hotplugStatusCallback 2
 populated (working) image:
DEBUG (DevController:643) hotplugStatusCallback 1
The Dom0 is the latest

Sadly this behaviour breaks our workflow of installing guests with empty QCOW
