Live migration is currently broken for me (using libvirt).

Additional info:

* qemu 1.4.0-2
* libvirt 1.0.4-1

Steps to reproduce:

# virsh migrate --live --verbose arch1 qemu+ssh://
error: operation failed: migration job: unexpectedly failed

qemu: warning: error while loading state section id 2
load of migration failed

This task depends upon

Sorry, this patch wasn't the fix - the problem was actually fixed by libvirt 1.0.4 and not the patch I tested. Sorry for the wrong report, will close it now.
