Updated qemu-kvm-rhev packages that fix two bugs and add one enhancement are nowavailable for Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor 7.
KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) is a full virtualization solution for Linuxon AMD64 and Intel 64 systems.

The qemu-kvm-rhev packages provide the user-spacecomponent for running virtual machines using KVM in environments managed by RedHat Enterprise Virtualization Manager.This update fixes the following bugs:* The fix for CVE-2016-5403 caused migrating guest instances to fail with a”Virtqueue size exceeded” error message. With this update, the value of thevirtualization queue is recalculated after the migration, and the describedproblem no longer occurs. (BZ#1374623)* Due to a race condition in the virtio-blk dataplane, live migration of a guestin some cases failed with a “Virtqueue size exceeded” error message.

This updateprevents the race condition from occurring, and thus allows live migration towork more reliably. (BZ#1380320)In addition, this update adds the following enhancement:* It is now possible to specify the virtio data buffer limit between a guest andthe QEMU emulator.

To do this, change the value of the <driverrx_queue_size=’N’/> parameter in the guest’s domain XML file, where N can befrom 256 to 1024. (BZ#1375642)Users of qemu-kvm-rhev are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, whichfix these bugs.

After installing this update, shut down all running virtualmachines. Once all virtual machines have shut down, start them again for thisupdate to take effect.
Before applying this update, make sure all previously released erratarelevant to your system have been applied.For details on how to apply this update, refer to:https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258Red Hat Virtualization ( v.4 for RHEL 7)
