OK, I've some updates and ideas that can help with narrowing some of these
issues down. Thank you for doing this.

Could you please test v3.10-rc3. There have been some changes
for the VCPU hotplug added in v3.10 that I am not sure whether
they are in v3.9?

That looks like you are hitting the udev race. 

Could you verify that these patches:

fix the issue (They are destined for v3.11)

Hm, the call-trace you refer too:

Looking at da36b64736cf2552e7fb5109c0255d4af804f5e7
    ixgbe: Implement PCI SR-IOV sysfs callback operation
it says it is using this:

commit 1789382a72a537447d65ea4131d8bcc1ad85ce7b
Author: Donald Dutile <ddutile@xxxxxxxxxx>
Date:   Mon Nov 5 15:20:36 2012 -0500

    PCI: SRIOV control and status via sysfs
    Provide files under sysfs to determine the maximum number of VFs
    an SR-IOV-capable PCIe device supports, and methods to enable and
    disable the VFs on a per-device basis.
    Currently, VF enablement by SR-IOV-capable PCIe devices is done
    via driver-specific module parameters.  If not setup in modprobe files,
    it requires admin to unload & reload PF drivers with number of desired
    VFs to enable.  Additionally, the enablement is system wide: all
    devices controlled by the same driver have the same number of VFs
    enabled.  Although the latter is probably desired, there are PCI
    configurations setup by system BIOS that may not enable that to occur.
    Two files are created for the PF of PCIe devices with SR-IOV support:
        sriov_totalvfs  Contains the maximum number of VFs the device
                        could support as reported by the TotalVFs register
                        in the SR-IOV extended capability.
        sriov_numvfs    Contains the number of VFs currently enabled on
                        this device as reported by the NumVFs register in
                        the SR-IOV extended capability.
                        Writing zero to this file disables all VFs.
                        Writing a positive number to this file enables that
                        number of VFs.
    These files are readable for all SR-IOV PF devices.  Writes to the
    sriov_numvfs file are effective only if a driver that supports the
    sriov_configure() method is attached.

Can you try that please?

That one worries me. Did you do a git bisect to figure out what
is commit is causing this?

This looks like a current bug with QEMU unstable missing a ACPI table?

Did you try booting the guest with the old QEMU?

device_model_version = 'qemu-xen-traditional'

That should be fixed in v3.11 (as now we have the fixes)
Could you try v3.10 with the Rafael's ACPI tree merged in?
(so the patches that he wants to submit for v3.11)

That I think is fixed in v3.10. Could you please check v3.10-rc3?

That looks to be with v2.6.32. Is the issue present with v3.9
or v3.10-rc3?

That I believe was an QEMU bug:

which should be in QEMU traditional now (05-21 was when it went
in the tree)

Ok, I can reproduce that too.

The rest I hadn't had a chance to look at. George, have you seen
these issues?
