Details

Updated qemu-kvm packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 6.

KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linux
on AMD64 and Intel 64 systems. qemu-kvm is the user-space component for running
virtual machines using KVM.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, when a new QEMU Machine Protocol (QMP) socket was connected and
then immediately closed, the qemu-kvm utility could become unresponsive and
consume 100% of the CPU. This bug has been fixed and qemu-kvm no longer hangs in
this scenario. (BZ#1069239)

Users of qemu-kvm are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix
this bug.
