QEMU is thread safe but you need to add explicit locking or use separate
event loops in each thread.  If you want to write from separate thread,
you need to do one of the following:

1) use one AioContext per file, and add an AioContext-based event loop
to each thread (see backends/iothread.c);

2) use one AioContext per file, add it (as a GSource) to a GMainContext
and use a GMainLoop-based event loop to each thread;

3) use aio_context_acquire and aio_context_release around each blk_* or
bdrv_* call.
