[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 for-2.7 00/14] qapi: Allow blockdev-add for NBD

From: Max Reitz
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 for-2.7 00/14] qapi: Allow blockdev-add for NBD
Date: Wed, 6 Apr 2016 20:28:36 +0200

Turns out NBD is not so simple to do if you do it right. Anyway, this
series adds blockdev-add support for NBD clients.

Patch 1 adds a QDict function which I needed in later NBD patches for
handling legacy options (move "host" to "address.data.host" etc.).

Patches 2, 3, 4, and 5 are minor patches with no functional relation to
this series, other than later patches will touch the code they touch,

Patches 6 and 7 prepare the code for the addition of a new option
prefix, which is "address.".

Patch 8 makes the NBD client accept a SocketAddress under the "address"
option (or rather, a flattened SocketAddress QDict with its keys
prefixed by "address."). The old options "host", "port", and "path" are
supported as legacy options and translated to the respective
SocketAddress representation.

Patch 9 drops usage of "host", "port", and "path" outside of
nbd_process_legacy_socket_options(), and nbd_refresh_filename(), making
those options nothing but legacy.

Patch 10, the goal of this series, is again not very complicated.

Patches 11, 12, and 13 are required for the iotest added in patch 16. It
will invoke qemu-nbd, so patch 13 is required. Besides qemu-nbd, it will
launch an NBD server VM concurrently to the client VM, which is why
patch 14 is required. And finally, it will test whether we can add an
NBD BDS by passing it a file descriptor, which patch 15 is needed for
(so we use the socket_scm_helper to pass sockets to qemu).

Patch 14 then adds the iotest for NBD's blockdev-add interface.

*** This series requires Daniel's qdict_crumple() function (from his
    "Provide a QOM-based authorization API" series). ***

- Dropped patches 2 and 3; use Daniel's qdict_crumple() instead.
- Patch 7: Not sure why the diff differs, seems functionally like the
  same patch to me. Maybe git changed something about its default diff
- Patch 8: Use qdict_crumple() instead of qdict_unflatten()
- Patch 10: Rebase conflicts

git-backport-diff against v2:

[----] : patches are identical
[####] : number of functional differences between upstream/downstream patch
[down] : patch is downstream-only
The flags [FC] indicate (F)unctional and (C)ontextual differences, respectively
