Jason Wang - April 25, 2013, 7:24 a.m.
Multiqueue patchset conditionally add control vq only when guest negotiate the
feature. Though the spec is not clear on this but it breaks the minix guest
since it will identify the ctrl vq even if it does not support it. Though this
behavior seems a violation on the spec "If the VIRTIO_NET_F_CTRL_VQ feature bit
is negotiated, identify the control virtqueue.", to keep the backward
compatibility, always add the ctrl vq at end of the queues.

Changes from V1:
- Drop the unrelated cleanups
- Drop the meaningless ctrl parameter of virtio_net_set_multiqueue()

Thanks a lot for this patch. It fixes the issue observed on Minix. For
the record it also fixes virtio-net with NetBSD 6.0.1, before it was
triggering an assertion in QEMU.

Now that the problem is clear, I will try to work on fixing the problem
on the OS side when I find some time.

For the record, now that I understand the problem, I have been able to
fix the issue on the guest side. Here are the links to the bug reports
and patches:

- Minix: https://gforge.cs.vu.nl/gf/project/minix/tracker/?action=TrackerItemEdit&tracker_item_id=653

- NetBSD: http://gnats.netbsd.org/47780
