2011-09-06async: Allow nested qemu_bh_poll callsKevin Wolf1-8/+16
qemu may segfault when a BH handler first deletes a BH and then (possibly indirectly) calls a nested qemu_bh_poll(). This is because the inner instance frees the BH and deletes it from the list that the outer one processes. This patch deletes BHs only in the outermost qemu_bh_poll instance. Commit 7887f620 already tried to achieve the same, but it assumed that the BH handler would only delete its own BH. With a nested qemu_bh_poll(), this isn't guaranteed, so that commit wasn't enough. Hope this one fixes it for real. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

2011-08-02async: Remove AsyncContextKevin Wolf1-91/+7
The purpose of AsyncContexts was to protect qcow and qcow2 against reentrancy during an emulated bdrv_read/write (which includes a qemu_aio_wait() call and can run AIO callbacks of different requests if it weren't for AsyncContexts). Now both qcow and qcow2 are protected by CoMutexes and AsyncContexts can be removed. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>
2011-06-15Allow nested qemu_bh_poll() after BH deletionKevin Wolf1-2/+3
Without this, qemu segfaults when a BH handler first deletes its BH and then calls another function which involves a nested qemu_bh_poll() call. This can be reproduced by generating an I/O error (e.g. with blkdebug) on an IDE device and using rerror/werror=stop to stop the VM. When continuing the VM, qemu segfaults.

2009-10-27Introduce contexts for asynchronous callbacksKevin Wolf1-7/+93
Add the possibility to use AIO and BHs without allowing foreign callbacks to be run. Basically, you put your own AIOs and BHs in a separate context. For details see the comments in the source. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>

Instead of putting more and more stuff into vl.c, let's have the generic functions that deal with asynchronous callbacks in their own file. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Anthony Liguori <aliguori@us.ibm.com>
