Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: Starting a domain with cu stom model andallowed-fallback failed when host lacks so me CPU features



Hi Jirka,

Thanks for your reviewing. But in the condition I described, libvirt has no chance to translate into a different model, because it has failed in the virCPUCompare before translate and the start of the domain will report the error, it that correct?
For example, a host lacks "monitor" feature, which means that we can't see "monitor" flag when we run "cat /proc/cpuinfo", it will report error when we try to start the domain with core2duo model:
"error: the CPU is incompatible with host CPU: Host CPU does not provide
required features: monitor"

NACK, it works exactly as designed. The fallback attribute would make a
difference only if core2duo CPU model was not supported by QEMU, then
libvirt would translate it into a different supported one.
