[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 00/31] vhost-user reconnect fixes

Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 00/31] vhost-user reconnect fixes

From: Marc-André Lureau <address@hidden>


Since 'vhost-user: simple reconnection support' has been merged, it is
possible to disconnect and reconnect a vhost-user backend. However,
many code paths in qemu may trigger assert() when the backend is

There are also code paths that are wrong, see "don't assume opaque is
a fd" patch for an example. Once those patches are reviewed & merged,
they are good candidates for stable too.

Some assert() could simply be replaced by error_report() or silently
fail since they are recoverable cases. Some missing error checks can
also help prevent later issues. The errors are reported up to vhost.c,
as the vhost-user backend alone doesn't handle disconnected state
transparently so far. There are still problematic code paths left
after this series, for example, starting a migration with a
disconnected backend will abort(). It is likely that other problematic
code path exists (vhost_scsi_start failure is fatal, but there are no
vhost-user backend that I know yet).

In many cases, the code assumes get_vhost_net() will be non-NULL after
a succesful connection, so I changed it to stay after a disconnect
until the new connection comes (as suggested by Michael).

Since there is feature checks on reconnection, qemu should wait for
the initial connection feature negotiation to complete. The test added
demonstrates this. Additionally, a regression was found during v2,
which could have been spotted with a multiqueue test, so add a basic
one that would have exhibited the issue.

For convenience, the series is also available on:
https://github.com/elmarco/qemu, branch vhost-user-reconnect

- rebased
- use a VHOST_OPS_DEBUG macro to print vhost_ops errors
- replace assert(foo != NULL) with assert(foo)
- add "RFC: vhost: do not update last avail idx"

- change notify_migration_done() patch to be VHOST_BACKEND_TYPE_USER
  specific, to avoid having to handle the case where the backend
  doesn't implement the callback
- change vhost_dev_cleanup() to assert on empty log, instead of
  adding a call to vhost_log_put()
- made "keep vhost_net after a disconnection" more robust, got rid of
  the acked_features field
- improve commit log, and some patch reorganization for clarity

- add vhost-user multiqueue test, which would have helped to find the
  following fix
- fix waiting on vhost-user connection with multiqueue (found by
  Yuanhan Liu)
- merge vhost_user_{read,write}() error checking patches
- add error reporting to vhost_user_read() (similar to
- add a vhost_net_set_backend() wrapper to help with potential crash
- some leak fixes

- some patch ordering: minor fix, close(fd) fix,
  assert/fprintf->error_report, check and return error,
  vhost_dev_cleanup() fixes, keep vhost_net after a disconnect, wait
  until connection is ready
- merge read/write error checks
- do not rely on link state to check vhost-user init completed

Marc-André Lureau (31):
  misc: indentation
  vhost-user: minor simplification
  vhost: don't assume opaque is a fd, use backend cleanup
  vhost: make vhost_log_put() idempotent
  vhost: assert the log was cleaned up
  vhost: fix cleanup on not fully initialized device
  vhost: make vhost_dev_cleanup() idempotent
  vhost-net: always call vhost_dev_cleanup() on failure
  vhost: fix calling vhost_dev_cleanup() after vhost_dev_init()
  vhost: do not assert() on vhost_ops failure
  vhost: add missing VHOST_OPS_DEBUG
  vhost: use error_report() instead of fprintf(stderr,...)
  qemu-char: fix qemu_chr_fe_set_msgfds() crash when disconnected
  vhost-user: call set_msgfds unconditionally
  vhost-user: check qemu_chr_fe_set_msgfds() return value
