Current guest kernels try allocating as many vectors as the quota is.
For example, in the case of virtio-net (which has just 3 vectors)
the guest requests 4 vectors (that is the quota in the test) and
the existing ibm,change-msi handler returns 4. But before it returns,
it calls msix_set_message() in a loop and corrupts memory behind
the end of msix_table.
This limits the number of vectors returned by ibm,change-msi to
the maximum supported by the actual device.

This might go to 2.0 actually.
Ping? Ok, not 2.0 but ppc-next-2.1 or ppc-next? :)
Thanks, applied to ppc-next and tagged as stable.
