I am trying to perform memory hotplug on an Ubuntu 16.04 qemu\kvm guest
and while I can successfully add memory, the added memory doesn't
automatically come online. After doing a bit of research I found out
that there is a kernel config option called
"CONFIG_MEMORY_HOTPLUG_DEFAULT_ONLINE" which needs to be enabled to have
automatic onlining of hotplugged memory. However, this option is not
available on the Ubuntu 16.04 which comes with a default kernel of
4.4.0-62-generic. I can get around this issue by creating a udev rule to
online memory. I was wondering if this is a bug that needs to be reported?
Host: Oracle Linux 7.4 + qemu2.9.0-3 + UEK 4.1.12-94.3.9
Guest: Ubuntu 16.04 with default kernel 4.4.0-62-generic
root at ubuntu-uefi-L1:~# cat /boot/config-4.4.0-62-generic | grep
This issue doesn't exist in Ubuntu 16.10 which comes with the
4.8.0-22-generic default kernel.
