[ANNOUNCE] KVM userspace release 5

From: Avi Kivity
Date: Tue Nov 28 2006 - 11:00:10 EST



- AMD SVM support (x86-64 hosts only)
- Preliminary live migration support
- 'make install' also installs kernel modules, if selected
- random fixes

The kernel package in this release produces three modules: kvm.ko, kvm-intel.ko, and kvm-amd.ko. To use kvm, you must either 'modprobe kvm-$arch', or 'insmod /path/to/kvm.ko; insmod /path/to/kvm-$arch.ko'.

The new live migration feature (at present more accurately described as "zombie migration", since the guest does not make progress while it is migrated) can be used as follows (assume two hosts A, B):

1. A: Start a VM. Play with it for a while.
2. B: Start a VM with *exactly* the same options, plus a '-S'. The disk images must be shared.
3. A: switch to monitor (alt-ctrl-2), type 'stop'.
4. B: switch to monitor, type 'migration listen'.
5. A: 'migration connect'
6. A: 'migration start offline'
7. A: 'quit'
8: B: 'cont', and switch to display (alt-ctrl-1)
