[PATCH v3 0/2] nbd/server: Quiesce coroutines on context switch

From: Sergio Lopez
Subject: [PATCH v3 0/2] nbd/server: Quiesce coroutines on context switch
Date: Thu, 21 Jan 2021 18:06:58 +0100

This series allows the NBD server to properly switch between AIO contexts,
having quiesced recv_coroutine and send_coroutine before doing the transition.

We need this because we send back devices running in IO Thread owned contexts
to the main context when stopping the data plane, something that can happen
multiple times during the lifetime of a VM (usually during the boot sequence or
on a reboot), and we drag the NBD server of the correspoing export with it.

While there, fix also a problem caused by a cross-dependency between
closing the export's client connections and draining the block
layer. The visible effect of this problem was QEMU getting hung when
the guest request a power off while there's an active NBD client.

 - Drop already merged "block: Honor blk_set_aio_context() context
 requirements" and "nbd/server: Quiesce coroutines on context switch"
 - Change the strategy for avoiding processing BDS twice to adding
 every child and parent to the ignore list in advance before
 processing them. (Kevin Wolf)
 - Replace "nbd/server: Quiesce coroutines on context switch" with
 "block: move blk_exp_close_all() to qemu_cleanup()"

 - Replace "virtio-blk: Acquire context while switching them on
 dataplane start" with "block: Honor blk_set_aio_context() context
 requirements" (Kevin Wolf)
 - Add "block: Avoid processing BDS twice in
 - Add "block: Close block exports in two steps"
 - Rename nbd_read_eof() to nbd_server_read_eof() (Eric Blake)
 - Fix double space and typo in comment. (Eric Blake)

Sergio Lopez (2):
  block: Avoid processing BDS twice in bdrv_set_aio_context_ignore()
  block: move blk_exp_close_all() to qemu_cleanup()
