  • SUSE CaaS Platform ALL
  • SUSE CaaS Platform 3.0

An update that has three recommended fixes can now be installed.

Description:



This update for qemu fixes the following issues:

  • Fix a condition when retry logic does not execute in case of data transmit failure or connection hungup (bsc#1108474)
  • Use /bin/bash to echo value into sys fs for ksm control (bsc#1112646)
  • fix memory leak in xen_disk (bsc#1100408)

  • building against xen-devel requires the XC_* compat macros to be set because this version of QEMU will be built against many versions of Xen. configure will decide on the appropriate function names it knows about today. To actually call these functions, future versions of Xen may require XC_* to be set. Furthermore, fix a bug in QEMU: xen_common.h undefines the XC_* macros unconditionally. (bsc#1100408)

  • Fix a condition when retry logic does not execute in case of data transmit failure or connection hungup (bsc#1108474)
