Bug detailed description:
----------------
1. Rhel7u2 guest with kernel 4.6.0 migrate failed
2. Rhel7u2 guest with kernel 4.6.0 restore failed
3. Rhel7u2 guest with default kernel (3.10.0) can be restored and migrate successfully

Environment :
----------------
HW: Skylake-SP
Xen: Xen 4.7.0 RC4
Dom0: Linux 4.5.2 stable

Reproduce steps:
----------------
Prepare test environment 
1.Install redhat 6.7 OS on Skylake-SP platform  as base OS , then compile and install  ,xen and Dom0, reboot from xen .
2.Create a rhel7.2 guest with kernel 4.6.0 via :
	xl create config.rhel7u2-4.6

Save/Restore test
1.After boot up guest with kernel 4.6.0 then :
	xl save $dom_id $save_guest.img
2.After save guest do
	xl restore $save_guest.img
3.Current status is guest with kernel 4.6.0 can be save successfully ,but restore guest failed . Guest with default kernel can be save/restore successfully .

Migrate test 
1. After boot up guest with kernel 4.6.0 then :
	xl migrate $dom_id localhost 
2. Current status is guest with kernel 4.6.0 migrate failed . Guest with default kernel can be migrate successfully .

Base error log:
----------------
rhel7u2_4.6.0_SR_fail.log file only for Save/Restore test , other log file are for migrate test .


Regards,
Pengtao

CC Anthony and Stefano

Anthony, I think this is also related to the QEMU mainline migration
failure.

In the QEMU log file:

  qemu-system-i386: Expected vmdescription section, but got 0

That means should_send_vmdesc() returns true in migration/savevm.c.

It could be that we need to explicitly set supress_vmdesc in machine
description.

Does the following hack make it work?

Actually I don't think this hack makes much sense. There is no need to
try it...

I will wait for QEMU maintainers to comment on this.

I don't think it is. The quote does not have anything regarding using
QEMU mainline. Also the migration failure in mainline does not affect
any release.

I've seen this log message, it does not appear to affect the migration,
as migration usully succeed and this message is always present. I
haven't investigate.

That won't work, we should be able to use QEMU with -machine xenfv or
-machine pc,accel=xen.
