This bug was fixed in the package qemu - 1:2.8+dfsg-2ubuntu1

qemu (1:2.8+dfsg-2ubuntu1) zesty; urgency=medium

  * Merge with Debian; remaining changes:
    - add qemu-kvm init script and defaults file
    - d/rules, d/qemu-kvm-init: add and install script loading kvm
      modules and handling /etc/default/qemu-kvm
    - qemu-system-common.preinst: add kvm group if needed
    - Enable nesting by default on intel.
      - set default module option
      - re-load kvm_intel.ko if it was loaded without nested=1
      - d/p/ubuntu/expose-vmx_qemu64cpu.patch: enable nested kvm by
        default in qemu64 cpu type.
    - Enable svm by default for qemu64 on amd
    - d/p/ubuntu/define-ubuntu-machine-types.patch: define distro machine
      types to ease future live vm migration.
    - Make qemu-system-common depend on qemu-block-extra
    - Make qemu-utils depend on qemu-block-extra
    - s390x support
      - Create qemu-system-s390x package
      - Include s390-ccw.img firmware
    - qemu-system-common.postinst:
      - change acl placed by udev, and add udevadm trigger.
      - d/control-in: change dependencies for fix of wrong acl for newly
        created device node on ubuntu
    - have qemu-system-arm suggest: qemu-efi; this should be a stronger
      relationship, but qemu-efi is still in universe right now.
    - d/qemu-kvm-init, d/kvm.powerpc, d/control-in: check SMT on ppc64el
    - Several changes were applied but missing in the changelog so far
      - d/qemu-system-ppc.links provide usr/bin/qemu-system-ppc64le symlink
      - arch aware kvm wrapper
      - update VCS links
      - no more skip disable libiscsi on Ubuntu
      - let qemu-utils recommend sharutils
      - disable x32 architecture
  * Dropped Changes:
    - Several changes were applied but missing in the changelog so far
      but are no more needed
      - no pie for relocatable LD calls, with toolchain defaulting to
        pie (fixed upstream)
      - enable libnuma-dev (now in Debian)
      - transition for moved init scripts (can be dropped after LTS
        containing >=2.5 which is Xenial)
      - --enable-seccomp related whitespace change (had no effect)
    - apport hook for qemu source package (In Debian)
    - add upstart script (d/qemu-system-common.qemu-kvm.upstart)
    - d/qemu-system-x86.maintscript: transition off of
      /etc/init.d/qemu-system-x86 (can be dropped after Xenial)
    - Enable pie by default, on ubuntu/s390x. (Is the default since
      >=Xenial, no cloud archive backport <=Xenial to consider)
    - no pie for relocatable LD calls (fixed upstream in commit
    - CVEs: CVE-2016-5403, CVE-2016-6351, CVE-2016-6490 (now Upstream)
    - Revert fix for CVE-2016-5403, causes regression see USN-3047-2.
      (Improved fix included by upstream)
    - Enable GPU Passthru for ppc64le (is upstream in qemu 2.7)
    - Fixed wrong migration blocker when vhost is used (is upstream in
      qemu 2.8)
  * Added Changes:
    - d/rules, d/control-in: avoid people editing d/control by warning
      header and non writable permissions
    - fixed moving trusty machine type definition which made it
      ambiguous (LP: #1641532)
      - d/qemu-system-x86.NEWS describe the issue
    - Enable seccomp for ppc64el (LP: #1644639)
    - Enable numa support for s390x
    - d/qemu-system-common.qemu-kvm.init: fix lintian error type
    - d/qemu-system-common.postinst: fix lintian error type
    - Transition qemu-kvm to a systemd unit
    - Disable glusterfs (Universe dependency)
    - d/qemu-kvm-init, d/kvm.powerpc ppc64el SMT check avoid unwanted output
    - d/qemu-kvm-init, d/kvm.powerpc ppc64el SMT check keep output local so
      that it shows up where the user expects (sytemctl status, kvm stdout)
    - d/qemu-kvm-init ppc64el warn on expected second level kvm-hv load failure
    - add arch aware kvm wrapper for s390x
    - d/p/ubuntu/ctrl-a-b-fix-fb5e19d2.patch: char: fix ctrl-a b not working
    - Enable DDW in Yakkety machine type because "Enable GPU Passthru for
      ppc64le" was released as part of qemu 2.6 (can be dropped at 18.10,
      merged in d/p/ubuntu/define-ubuntu-machine-types.patch)

Bug description:

  I'm currently live-migrating many VMs from an old server to a new one,
  and some VM can't be live migrated.

  The source host is trusty with qemu-system-x86 1:2.3+dfsg-5ubuntu9.4~cloud2
  The destination host is xenial with qemu-system-x86 1:2.5+dfsg-5ubuntu10.6

  When the issue occurs, the destination host raises an error [1] and
  stop the migration process.

  The only difference I see between VMs where live migration works and
  those were it doesn't work is a different machine type.

  * migration works when VM have been created with pc-i440fx-vivid
  * migration doesn't work when VM have been created with pc-i440fx-utopic

  [1] the qemu error report by libvirt on the destination host
