Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH for-4.0 0/6] vhost-user-blk: Add support for backend reconnecting
Date: Thu, 6 Dec 2018 14:35:46 +0800

From: Xie Yongji <address@hidden>

This patchset is aimed at supporting qemu to reconnect
vhost-user-blk backend after vhost-user-blk backend crash or

The patch 1 tries to implenment the sync connection for
"reconnect socket".

The patch 2 introduces a new message VHOST_USER_SET_VRING_INFLIGHT
to support offering shared memory to backend to record
its inflight I/O.

The patch 3,4 are the corresponding libvhost-user patches of
patch 2. Make libvhost-user support VHOST_USER_SET_VRING_INFLIGHT.

The patch 5 supports vhost-user-blk to reconnect backend when
connection closed.

The patch 6 tells qemu that we support reconnecting now.

To use it, we could start qemu with:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
        -chardev socket,id=char0,path=/path/vhost.socket,reconnect=1,wait \
        -device vhost-user-blk-pci,chardev=char0 \

and start vhost-user-blk backend with:

vhost-user-blk -b /path/file -s /path/vhost.socket

Then we can restart vhost-user-blk at any time during VM running.

Xie Yongji (6):
  char-socket: Enable "wait" option for client mode
  vhost-user: Add shared memory to record inflight I/O
  libvhost-user: Introduce vu_queue_map_desc()
  libvhost-user: Support recording inflight I/O in shared memory
  vhost-user-blk: Add support for reconnecting backend
  contrib/vhost-user-blk: enable inflight I/O recording
