[PATCH v2 3/3] nbd: make nbd_read* return -EIO on error

From: Roman Kagan
Subject: [PATCH v2 3/3] nbd: make nbd_read* return -EIO on error
Date: Fri, 29 Jan 2021 10:38:59 +0300

NBD reconnect logic considers the error code from the functions that
read NBD messages to tell if reconnect should be attempted or not: it is
attempted on -EIO, otherwise the client transitions to NBD_CLIENT_QUIT
state (see nbd_channel_error).  This error code is propagated from the
primitives like nbd_read.

The problem, however, is that nbd_read itself turns every error into -1
rather than -EIO.  As a result, if the NBD server happens to die while
sending the message, the client in QEMU receives less data than it
expects, considers it as a fatal error, and wouldn't attempt
reestablishing the connection.

Fix it by turning every negative return from qio_channel_read_all into
-EIO returned from nbd_read.  Apparently that was the original behavior,
but got broken later.  Also adjust nbd_readXX to follow.
