OK, that's a big rewrite of the logic.

Pre-patch we have an always running coroutine - connection_co. It does

and unobvious code around drained sections and context switch. We also
abuse bs->in_flight counter which is increased for connection_co and
temporary decreased in points where we want to allow drained section to
begin. One of these place is in another file: in nbd_read_eof() in

We also cancel reconnect and requests waiting for reconnect on drained
begin which is not correct.

And this patch fixes that.

Let's finally drop this always running coroutine and go another way:

Hmm here is missed something like:

  go another way: do both reconnect and receiving in request coroutines.

1. receiving coroutines are woken directly from nbd_channel_error, when
    we change s->state

2. nbd_co_establish_connection_cancel(): we don't have drain_begin now,
    and in nbd_teardown_connection() all requests should already be
    finished (and reconnect is done from request). So
    nbd_co_establish_connection_cancel() is called from
    nbd_cancel_in_flight() (to cancel the request that is doing
