[Qemu-block] [PATCH v2 00/10] file-posix: Make auto-read-only dynamic

From: Kevin Wolf
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH v2 00/10] file-posix: Make auto-read-only dynamic
Date: Mon, 11 Mar 2019 17:50:07 +0100

We introduced the auto-read-only option to fix the problem that block
jobs that reopen a backing file read-write don't work any more when all
nodes are created individually with -blockdev. The reason is that
bs->file of these backing files doesn't inherit the read-only option
from the format layer node any more if it's created separately.

The way auto-read-only was designed to fix this is that it just always
opens the file node read-write if it can, so reopening the format layer
node is enough to make the backing file writable when necessary.

This works in principle, but not when libvirt uses sVirt: Then QEMU
doesn't even have the permissions to open the image file read-write
until libvirt performs an operation where write access is needed.

This series changes auto-read-only so that it works dynamically and
automatically reopens the file read-only or read-write depending on the
permissions that users attached to the node requested.
