iothread: workaround glib bug which hangs qmp-test
Free the AIO context earlier than the GMainContext (if we have) to workaround a glib2 bug that GSource context pointer is not cleared even if the context has already been destroyed (while it should). The patch itself only changed the order to destroy the objects, no functional change at all. Without this workaround, we can encounter qmp-test hang with oob (and possibly any other use case when iothread is used with GMainContexts): #0 0x00007f35ffe45334 in __lll_lock_wait () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0 #1 0x00007f35ffe405d8 in _L_lock_854 () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0 #2 0x00007f35ffe404a7 in pthread_mutex_lock () from /lib64/libpthread.so.0 #3 0x00007f35fc5b9c9d in g_source_unref_internal (source=0x24f0600, context=0x7f35f0000960, have_lock=0) at gmain.c:1685 #4 0x0000000000aa6672 in aio_context_unref (ctx=0x24f0600) at /root/qemu/util/async.c:497 #5 0x000000000065851c in iothread_instance_finalize (obj=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/iothread.c:129 #6 0x0000000000962d79 in object_deinit (obj=0x24f0380, type=0x242e960) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:462 #7 0x0000000000962e0d in object_finalize (data=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:476 #8 0x0000000000964146 in object_unref (obj=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:924 #9 0x0000000000965880 in object_finalize_child_property (obj=0x24ec640, name=0x24efca0 "mon_iothread", opaque=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:1436 #10 0x0000000000962c33 in object_property_del_child (obj=0x24ec640, child=0x24f0380, errp=0x0) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:436 #11 0x0000000000962d26 in object_unparent (obj=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/qom/object.c:455 #12 0x0000000000658f00 in iothread_destroy (iothread=0x24f0380) at /root/qemu/iothread.c:365 #13 0x00000000004c67a8 in monitor_cleanup () at /root/qemu/monitor.c:4663 #14 0x0000000000669e27 in main (argc=16, argv=0x7ffc8b1ae2f8, envp=0x7ffc8b1ae380) at /root/qemu/vl.c:4749 The glib2 bug is fixed in commit 26056558b ("gmain: allow g_source_get_context() on destroyed sources", 2012-07-30), so the first good version is glib2 2.33.10. But we still support building with glib as old as 2.28, so we need the workaround. Let's make sure we destroy the GSources first before its owner context until we drop support for glib older than 2.33.10.
