The fact is
1. The destination polls sending of READY message successfully. Either READY
     message is sent successfully indeed and the source does not receive it, or 
     destination dose not send READY message out at all.
2. I've tried to send READY message again by adding some codes during the 
    Source can receive the READY message successfully. So the connection is not
    broken and the QP works fine.

The packet loss what I'm talking about does not only refer to the loss during 
transmission. The message may also not be sent out successfully actually. 
returns with no error, but the source dosen't receive message. For qemu, the 
it sent is lost.
