Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH V3 0/6] ide: avoid main-loop hang on CDROM/NFS failure
Date: Fri, 6 Nov 2015 09:42:47 +0100

This series aims at avoiding a hanging main-loop if a vserver has a
CDROM image mounted from a NFS share and that NFS share goes down.
Typical situation is that users mount an CDROM ISO to install something
and then forget to eject that CDROM afterwards.
As a consequence this mounted CD is able to bring down the
whole vserver if the backend NFS share is unreachable. This is bad
especially if the CDROM itself is not needed anymore at this point.

v2->v3: - adressed Stefans comments on Patch 1
        - added patches 2,4,5,6
        - avoided the term cancel in Patch 3. Added an iovec,
          added a BH [Stefan]
v1->v2: - fix offset for 2352 byte sector size [Kevin]
        - use a sync request if we continue an elementary transfer.
          As John pointed out we enter a race condition between next
          IDE command and async transfer otherwise. This is sill not
          optimal, but it fixes the NFS down problems for all cases where
          the NFS server goes down while there is no PIO CD activity.
          Of course, it could still happen during a PIO transfer, but I
          expect this to be the unlikelier case.
          I spent some effort trying to read more sectors at once and
          avoiding continuation of elementary transfers, but with
          whatever I came up it was destroying migration between different
          Qemu versions. I have a quite hackish patch that works and
          should survive migration, but I am not happy with it. So I
          would like to start with this version as it is a big improvement
        - Dropped Patch 5 because it is upstream meanwhile.

Peter Lieven (6):
  ide/atapi: make PIO read requests async
  block: add blk_abort_aio_request
  ide: add support for IDEBufferedRequest
  ide: orphan all buffered requests on DMA cancel
  ide: enable buffered requests for ATAPI devices
  ide: enable buffered requests for PIO read requests
