[PATCH v7 0/7] block: seriously improve savevm/loadvm performance

From: Denis V. Lunev
Subject: [PATCH v7 0/7] block: seriously improve savevm/loadvm performance
Date: Fri, 3 Jul 2020 20:35:31 +0300

This series do standard basic things:
- it creates intermediate buffer for all writes from QEMU migration code
  to QCOW2 image,
- this buffer is sent to disk asynchronously, allowing several writes to
  run in parallel.

In general, migration code is fantastically inefficent (by observation),
buffers are not aligned and sent with arbitrary pieces, a lot of time
less than 100 bytes at a chunk, which results in read-modify-write
operations with non-cached operations. It should also be noted that all
operations are performed into unallocated image blocks, which also suffer
due to partial writes to such new clusters.

This patch series is an implementation of idea discussed in the RFC
posted by Denis Plotnikov
Results with this series over NVME are better than original code
                original     rfc    this
cached:          1.79s      2.38s   1.27s
non-cached:      3.29s      1.31s   0.81s

Changes from v6:
- blk_load_vmstate kludges added (patchew problem fixed)

Changes from v5:
- loadvm optimizations added with Vladimir comments included

Changes from v4:
- added patch 4 with blk_save_vmstate() cleanup
- added R-By
- bdrv_flush_vmstate -> bdrv_finalize_vmstate
- fixed return code of bdrv_co_do_save_vmstate
- fixed typos in comments (Eric, thanks!)
- fixed patchew warnings

Changes from v3:
- rebased to master
- added patch 3 which removes aio_task_pool_wait_one()
- added R-By to patch 1
- patch 4 is rewritten via bdrv_run_co
- error path in blk_save_vmstate() is rewritten to call bdrv_flush_vmstate
- added some comments
- fixes initialization in bdrv_co_vmstate_save_task_entry as suggested

Changes from v2:
- code moved from QCOW2 level to generic block level
- created bdrv_flush_vmstate helper to fix 022, 029 tests
- added recursive for bs->file in bdrv_co_flush_vmstate (fix 267)
- fixed blk_save_vmstate helper
- fixed coroutine wait as Vladimir suggested with waiting fixes from me

Changes from v1:
- patchew warning fixed
- fixed validation that only 1 waiter is allowed in patch 1
