Description Chris Lalancette 2008-06-17 12:21:52 UTC
Description of problem:
As a corollary of BZ 451709, when libvirtd fails to start domains because of the
bug there, it also fails to clean up after itself.  In particular, it leaves a
"vnet?" device visible and connected to virbr0, even though there is no domain.
 This further causes problems when rebooting the kernel, since you then get
messages "kernel: waiting for netdev vnet0 to become free" infinitely.  You also
cannot kill the libvirtd daemon.

Comment 1 Chris Lalancette 2008-06-19 09:09:16 UTC
Hm.  Weird.  I can't seem to reproduce the "can't kill libvirtd" problem at the
moment (after a reboot of the host machine).  However, the "doesn't cleanup
vnet?" is still a problem.

Comment 2 Chris Lalancette 2008-06-19 10:08:15 UTC
This one is actually closely related to BZ 451709, which I now have a patch for.
 I'm going to close it as a duplicate.
