[Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC v3 for-2.9 09/11] rbd: Revert -blockdev paramete

From: Markus Armbruster
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH RFC v3 for-2.9 09/11] rbd: Revert -blockdev parameter password-secret
Date: Mon, 27 Mar 2017 15:26:33 +0200

This reverts a part of commit 8a47e8e.  We're having second thoughts
on the QAPI schema (and thus the external interface), and haven't
reached consensus, yet.  Issues include:

* BlockdevOptionsRbd member @password-secret isn't actually a
  password, it's a key generated by Ceph.

* We're not sure where member @password-secret belongs (see the
  previous commit).

* How @password-secret interacts with settings from a configuration
  file specified with @conf is undocumented.  I suspect it's untested,

Let's avoid painting ourselves into a corner now, and revert the
feature for 2.9.

Note that users can still configure an authentication key with a
configuration file.  They probably do that anyway if they use Ceph
outside QEMU as well.
