[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] Quorum disk image corruption resiliency

From: Benoît Canet
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 00/11] Quorum disk image corruption resiliency
Date: Tue, 23 Oct 2012 14:23:38 +0200

This patchset is posted for inclusion into 1.3.

It create a block driver implementing a quorum using total qemu disk
images. Writes are mirrored on the $total files.
For the reading part the $total files are read at the same time and a vote is
done to determine if a qiov version is present $threshold or more times. It then
return this majority version to the upper layers.
When i < $threshold versions of the data are returned by the lower layer the
quorum is broken and the read return -EIO.

The goal of this patchset is to be turned in a QEMU block filter living just
above raw-*.c and below qcow2/qed when the required infrastructure will be done.

Main use of this feature will be people using NFS appliances which can be
subjected to bitflip errors.

This patchset can be used to replace blkverify and the out of tree blkmirror.

usage: -drive

since latest RFC:

Eric Blake: revert back separator to ":"
            rewrite quorum_getlength

Benoît Canet: use memcmp to compare iovec excepted for the blkverify case
              use strstart to parse argument in open

Benoît Canet (11):
  quorum: Create quorum.c, add QuorumSingleAIOCB and QuorumAIOCB.
  quorum: Create BDRVQuorumState and BlkDriver and do init.
  quorum: Add quorum_open() and quorum_close().
  quorum: Add quorum_aio_writev and its dependencies.
  blkverify: Extract qemu_iovec_clone() and qemu_iovec_compare() from
  quorum: Add quorum_co_flush().
  quorum: Add quorum_aio_readv.
  quorum: Add quorum mechanism.
  quorum: Add quorum_getlength().
  quorum: Add quorum_invalidate_cache().
  quorum: Add quorum_co_is_allocated.
