Oops. Doesn't sound quite right...

Are there any specific signals you're thinking of? Related to block code
I can only think of SIGUSR2 and this one shouldn't call any block driver
functions directly. You're using aio=threads, I assume? (It's the default)

QLIST_FOREACH_SAFE shouldn't make a difference in this place as the loop
doesn't insert or remove any elements. If the list is corrupted now, I
think it would be corrupted with QLIST_FOREACH_SAFE as well - at best,
the endless loop would occur one call later.

The only way I see to get such a loop in a list is to re-insert an
element that already is part of the list. The only insert is at
qcow2-cluster.c:777. Remains the question how we came there twice
without run_dependent_requests() removing the L2Meta from our list first
- because this is definitely wrong...

Presumably, it's not reproducible?
