[RFC] qemu_cleanup: do vm_shutdown() before bdrv_drain_all_begin()

That doesn't seem good to stop handling io when guest is still running.
For example it leads to the following:

After bdrv_drain_all_begin(), during vm_shutdown() scsi_dma_writev()
calls blk_aio_pwritev(). As we are in drained section the request waits
in blk_wait_while_drained().

Next, during bdrv_close_all() bs is removed from blk, and blk drain
finishes. So, the request is resumed, and fails with -ENOMEDIUM.
Corresponding BLOCK_IO_ERROR event is sent and takes place in libvirt
log. That doesn't seem good.

Hi all!

In our product (v5.2 based) we faced -ENOMEDIUM BLOCK_IO_ERROR events
during qemu termination (by SIGTERM). I don't have a reproducer for
master. Still the problem seems possible.

Ideas of how to reproduce it are welcome.

Also, I thought that issuing blk_ requests from SCSI is not possible
during drained section, and logic with blk_wait_while_drained() was
introduced for IDE..  Which code is responsible for not issuing SCSI
requests during drained sections? May be it is racy.. Or it may be our
downstream problem, I don't know :(
