[Qemu-block] [PATCH 01/29] qed: Use bottom half to resume waiting reques

From: Kevin Wolf
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH 01/29] qed: Use bottom half to resume waiting requests
Date: Fri, 26 May 2017 22:21:42 +0200

The qed driver serialises allocating write requests. When the active
allocation is finished, the AIO callback is called, but after this, the
next allocating request is immediately processed instead of leaving the
coroutine. Resuming another allocation request in the same request
coroutine means that the request now runs in the wrong coroutine.

The following is one of the possible effects of this: The completed
request will generally reenter its request coroutine in a bottom half,
expecting that it completes the request in bdrv_driver_pwritev().
However, if the second request actually yielded before leaving the
coroutine, the reused request coroutine is in an entirely different
place and is reentered prematurely. Not a good idea.

Let's make sure that we exit the coroutine after completing the first
request by resuming the next allocating request only with a bottom
