[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/7] Block Throttle Group Support

From: Alberto Garcia
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v4 0/7] Block Throttle Group Support
Date: Thu, 26 Mar 2015 19:24:54 +0200

A new version of the patchset.

Here was the previous one:


I checked all the things pointed out by Stefan in his comments and I
think all of them are fixed now.

In addition to that I detected and fixed some additional problems.

Here's the detailed list of changes:

- All functions from the ThrottleGroup API now receive a BlockDriverState.
  This simplifies the API a bit more and makes it more consistent.

- The creation/destruction of ThrottleTimers is now handled internally
  when a BlockDriverState is added/removed from a group, since there's
  not much point on keeping them separate. This also hides the timer
  callbacks from the outside, which makes things a bit nicer and
  easier for some of the other changes included in these series.

- bdrv_io_limits_enable() no longer accepts NULL as a valid group name.

- No member of a group can access someone else's throttled_reqs queues
  anymore since there's no safe way to do it. A new (protected) field
  in BDS called pending_reqs serves that purpose now.

- No member of a group can access someone else's timers unless they
  have queued requests. A new field in ThrottleGroup called
  any_timer_armed serves that purpose. This allows changing a BDS's
  AioContext without having to remove it from the group. Otherwise
  it's not safe to call bdrv_set_aio_context().

- After a timer is fired make sure that there was actually a request
  in the queue, and schedule a new one otherwise. This is an unlikely
  corner case that I detected while preparing these series.

- New throttle_group_lock/unlock functions. These are only needed for
  the case of bdrv_swap(), which is not easy to rewrite in a way that
  does not crash without locking the group.

- throttle_group_co_io_limits_intercept() is now marked as a coroutine

- Documentation updates.
