           Summary: qemu-dm segfaults on iscsi timeout
           Product: Xen
           Version: unstable
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: HVM
        AssignedTo: xen-bugs@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
        ReportedBy: rikratva@xxxxxxxxx

This is on Xen 3.3.1.

I am running several (Windows) HVM DomUs. Their storage is located on an iSCSI
machine; the disks are defined like this:

Sometimes there is a small network timeout to the iSCSI machine, for example
when I reload the iscsi target. All para-virtual Linux DomUs keep running just
fine with their storage from this iSCSI machine, but the HVM DomUs will crash.
qemu-dm goes defunct and the state of the DomU will be "------".

Sometimes, only the HVM domains under heavy disk load will crash, and other HVM
domains will keep running like nothing happened.

It seems like qemu-dm is unable to handle even very small network timeouts,
which makes HVM DomU crash a little too often.

Snippet from kern.log when this happens and 4 DomUs crash:

Dom0 kernel: qemu-dm[26627]: segfault at 0000000000000260 rip 000000000042a337
