[PATCH 1/1] net: Fix handling of id in netdev_add and netdev_del

From: Markus Armbruster
Subject: [PATCH 1/1] net: Fix handling of id in netdev_add and netdev_del
Date: Wed, 25 Nov 2020 11:02:20 +0100

CLI -netdev accumulates in option group "netdev".

Before commit 08712fcb85 "net: Track netdevs in NetClientState rather
than QemuOpt", netdev_add added to the option group, and netdev_del
removed from it, both HMP and QMP.  Thus, every netdev had a
corresponding QemuOpts in this option group.

Commit 08712fcb85 dropped this for QMP netdev_add and both netdev_del.
Now a netdev has a corresponding QemuOpts only when it was created
with CLI or HMP.  Two issues:

* QMP and HMP netdev_del can leave QemuOpts behind, breaking HMP
  netdev_add.  Reproducer:

    $ qemu-system-x86_64 -S -display none -nodefaults -monitor stdio
    QEMU 5.1.92 monitor - type 'help' for more information
    (qemu) netdev_add user,id=net0
    (qemu) info network
    net0: index=0,type=user,net=,restrict=off
    (qemu) netdev_del net0
    (qemu) info network
    (qemu) netdev_add user,id=net0
    upstream-qemu: Duplicate ID 'net0' for netdev
    Try "help netdev_add" for more information

  Fix by restoring the QemuOpts deletion in qmp_netdev_del(), but with
  a guard, because the QemuOpts need not exist.

* QMP netdev_add loses its "no duplicate ID" check.  Reproducer:

    $ qemu-system-x86_64 -S -display none -qmp stdio
    {"QMP": {"version": {"qemu": {"micro": 92, "minor": 1, "major": 5}, 
"package": "v5.2.0-rc2-1-g02c1f0142c"}, "capabilities": ["oob"]}}
    {"execute": "qmp_capabilities"}
    {"return": {}}
    {"execute": "netdev_add", "arguments": {"type": "user", "id":"net0"}}
    {"return": {}}
    {"execute": "netdev_add", "arguments": {"type": "user", "id":"net0"}}
    {"return": {}}

  Fix by adding a duplicate ID check to net_client_init1() to replace
  the lost one.  The check is redundant for callers where QemuOpts
  still checks, i.e. for CLI and HMP.
