[Qemu-devel] QEMU segfault: Booting an overlay with backing_file over NB

A simple reproducer below.

Export a disk image over NBD (I realize port 10809 is default, thought
I'd explicitly mention anyhow):

  $ qemu-nbd --f qcow2 -p10809 \
        /var/lib/libvirt/images/cirros-0.3.3-x86_64-disk.img -t

Create an overlay with backing file exported via NBD:

  $ qemu-img create -f qcow2 -F \
        nbd -o backing_file=nbd://localhost overlay1.qcow2
    Formatting 'overlay1.qcow2', fmt=qcow2 size=41126400 
backing_file='nbd://localhost' backing_fmt='nbd' encryption=off 
cluster_size=65536 lazy_refcounts=off

Let's attempt to boot the overlay with a minimal QEMU:

  $ qemu-system-x86_64               \
     -nographic                      \
     -nodefconfig                    \
     -nodefaults                     \
     -m 2048                         \
     -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi \
     -device virtio-serial-pci       \
     -serial stdio                   \
     -drive file=./overlay1.qcow2,format=qcow2,if=virtio,cache=writeback
  Segmentation fault (core dumped)

On the shell where `qemu-nbd` is running, I notice this

  nbd.c:nbd_receive_request():L756: read failed

Haven't investigated further with GDB, thought I'd bring it up here


  $ rpm -q qemu; uname -r
