 From time to time qemu-nbd is crashing on the following assert:
     assert(state == TERMINATING);
and the state at the moment of the crash is evaluated to TERMINATE.

During shutdown process of the client the nbd_client_thread thread sends
SIGTERM signal and the main thread calls the nbd_client_closed callback.
If the SIGTERM callback will be executed after change the state to
TERMINATING, then the state will once again be TERMINATE.

To solve the issue, we must change the state to TERMINATE only if the state
is RUNNING. In the other case we are shutting down already.

I'm not able to send further pull requests for 2.6, can the block
maintainers help?


unfortunately, if () would be not enough. The race is with different
thread which can run on the another CPU. Thus this OP should be
atomic or some locking is required.


P.S. Added more block guys...
