[Qemu-block] [PATCH v5 0/6] Allow Valgrind checking all QEMU processes

From: Andrey Shinkevich
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH v5 0/6] Allow Valgrind checking all QEMU processes
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2019 19:30:10 +0300

In the current implementation of the QEMU bash iotests, only qemu-io
processes may be run under the Valgrind, which is a useful tool for
finding memory usage issues. Let's allow the common.rc bash script
runing all the QEMU processes, such as qemu-kvm, qemu-img, qemu-ndb
and qemu-vxhs, under the Valgrind tool.

  01: The patch "block/nbd: NBDReply is used being uninitialized" was detached
      and taken into account in the patch "nbd: Initialize reply on failure"
      by Eric Blake.

  01: The patch "iotests: Set read-zeroes on in null block driver for Valgrind"
      was extended with new cases and issued as a separate series.
  02: The new patch "block/nbd: NBDReply is used being uninitialized" was
      added to resolve the failure of the iotest 083 run under Valgrind.

  01: The new function _casenotrun() was added to the common.rc bash
      script to notify the user of test cases dropped for some reason.
      Suggested by Kevin.
      Particularly, the notification about the nonexistent TMPDIR in
      the test 051 was added (noticed by Vladimir).
  02: The timeout in some test cases was extended for Valgrind because
      it differs when running on the ramdisk.
  03: Due to the common.nbd script has been changed with the commit
      b28f582c, the patch "iotests: amend QEMU NBD process synchronization"
      is actual no more. Note that QEMU_NBD is launched in the bash nested
      shell in the _qemu_nbd_wrapper() as it was before in common.rc.
  04: The patch "iotests: new file to suppress Valgrind errors" was dropped
      due to my superficial understanding of the work of the function
      blk_pread_unthrottled(). Special thanks to Kevin who shed the light
      on the null block driver involved. Now, the parameter 'read-zeroes=on'
      is passed to the null block driver to initialize the buffer in the
      function guess_disk_lchs() that the Valgrind was complaining to.

  01: The patch 2/7 of v1 was merged into the patch 1/7, suggested by Daniel.
  02: Another patch 7/7 was added to introduce the Valgrind error suppression
      file into the QEMU project.
  Discussed in the email thread with the message ID:

Andrey Shinkevich (6):
  iotests: allow Valgrind checking all QEMU processes
  iotests: exclude killed processes from running under  Valgrind
  iotests: Add casenotrun report to bash tests
  iotests: Valgrind fails with nonexistent directory
  iotests: extended timeout under Valgrind
  iotests: extend sleeping time under Valgrind
