[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 0/8] QMP wrappers for VM snapshot operations

From: Denis V. Lunev
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v5 0/8] QMP wrappers for VM snapshot operations
Date: Thu, 14 Jan 2016 14:28:53 +0300

EFI based VM with pflash storage for NVRAM could not be snapshoted as
libvirt configures storage as 'raw' and writable. OK, this is a libvirt

Another problem is that libvirt can not detect this failure at all
as it uses HMP for this operation. This create snapshot/delete snapshot
sequence passes silently.

The patchset adds QMP wrappers for the purpose and specifically changes
behavior of the savevm/loadvm:
- savevm now allows optional argument to allow to specify block device
  to save VM state to
- loadvm locate block device which really contains VM state

Eric, Marcus, I don't want to merge addition of the 'device' parameter
into patch 5. The present patch split looks better to me.

Changes from v4:
- patches allows to save VM state to arbitrary BDS added

Changes from v3:
- wrong patch 1 is replaced

Changes from v2:
- patches 1/2 are resplit to move processing HMP specific handling
  of snapshot name generation to exclusive HMP code
- removed all '.' at the end of error_setg strings
- fixed too long lines with '-' in qmp-commands.hx
- error_setg_errno errno passing is fixed (-ret)
- fixed logical error in hmp_loadvm (vm_start on error)
- NOT switched to error_prepend code (it is not yet merged). Can we do this
  later? This will make my life easear merging code to our downstream.

Changes from v1:
- cosmetic fixes suggested by Markus. I pray I have added all of them
- patch 5 is rewritten completely. Original one was deadbeaf

Denis V. Lunev (8):
  migration: split hmp_savevm to migrate_savevm and hmp_savevm wrapper
  qmp: create qmp_savevm command
  qmp: create qmp_delvm command
  migration: improve error reporting for load_vmstate
  qmp: create QMP implementation of loadvm command
  migration, block: better select BDS for VM state loading
  migration, qmp: add optional argument to specify BDS to save VM state
  block: allow to skip block driver in selection of one for VM state
