2014-03-13aio: add aio_context_acquire() and aio_context_release()Stefan Hajnoczi
It can be useful to run an AioContext from a thread which normally does not "own" the AioContext. For example, request draining can be implemented by acquiring the AioContext and looping aio_poll() until all requests have been completed. The following pattern should work: /* Event loop thread */ while (running) { aio_context_acquire(ctx); aio_poll(ctx, true); aio_context_release(ctx); } /* Another thread */ aio_context_acquire(ctx); bdrv_read(bs, 0x1000, buf, 1); aio_context_release(ctx); This patch implements aio_context_acquire() and aio_context_release(). Note that existing aio_poll() callers do not need to worry about acquiring and releasing - it is only needed when multiple threads will call aio_poll() on the same AioContext.

2013-08-19aio: drop io_flush argumentStefan Hajnoczi
The .io_flush() handler no longer exists and has no users. Drop the io_flush argument to aio_set_fd_handler() and related functions. The AioFlushEventNotifierHandler and AioFlushHandler typedefs are no longer used and are dropped too.

2013-07-19QEMUBH: make AioContext's bh re-entrantLiu Ping Fan
BH will be used outside big lock, so introduce lock to protect between the writers, ie, bh's adders and deleter. The lock only affects the writers and bh's callback does not take this extra lock. Note that for the same AioContext, aio_bh_poll() can not run in parallel yet.

2013-03-15aio: add a ThreadPool instance to AioContextStefan Hajnoczi
This patch adds a ThreadPool to AioContext. It's possible that some AioContext instances will never use the ThreadPool, so defer creation until aio_get_thread_pool(). The reason why AioContext should have the ThreadPool is because the ThreadPool is bound to a AioContext instance where the work item's callback function is invoked. It doesn't make sense to keep the ThreadPool pointer anywhere other than AioContext. For example, block/raw-posix.c can get its AioContext's ThreadPool and submit work. Special note about headers: I used struct ThreadPool in aio.h because there is a circular dependency if aio.h includes thread-pool.h.

2013-02-21aio: convert aio_poll() to g_poll(3)Stefan Hajnoczi
AioHandler already has a GPollFD so we can directly use its events/revents. Add the int pollfds_idx field to AioContext so we can map g_poll(3) results back to AioHandlers. Reuse aio_dispatch() to invoke handlers after g_poll(3).

2012-11-12aio: fix aio_ctx_prepare with idle bottom halvesPaolo Bonzini
Commit ed2aec4867f0d5f5de496bb765347b5d0cfe113d changed the return value of aio_ctx_prepare from false to true when only idle bottom halves are available. This broke PC old-style DMA, which uses them. Fix this by making aio_ctx_prepare return true only when non-idle bottom halves are scheduled to run.

2012-10-30aio: introduce AioContext, move bottom halves therePaolo Bonzini
Start introducing AioContext, which will let us remove globals from aio.c/async.c, and introduce multiple I/O threads. The bottom half functions now take an additional AioContext argument. A bottom half is created with a specific AioContext that remains the same throughout the lifetime. qemu_bh_new is just a wrapper that uses a global context.

2011-09-06async: Allow nested qemu_bh_poll callsKevin Wolf
qemu may segfault when a BH handler first deletes a BH and then (possibly indirectly) calls a nested qemu_bh_poll(). This is because the inner instance frees the BH and deletes it from the list that the outer one processes. This patch deletes BHs only in the outermost qemu_bh_poll instance. Commit 7887f620 already tried to achieve the same, but it assumed that the BH handler would only delete its own BH. With a nested qemu_bh_poll(), this isn't guaranteed, so that commit wasn't enough. Hope this one fixes it for real. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>

2011-08-02async: Remove AsyncContextKevin Wolf
The purpose of AsyncContexts was to protect qcow and qcow2 against reentrancy during an emulated bdrv_read/write (which includes a qemu_aio_wait() call and can run AIO callbacks of different requests if it weren't for AsyncContexts). Now both qcow and qcow2 are protected by CoMutexes and AsyncContexts can be removed. Signed-off-by: Kevin Wolf <kwolf@redhat.com>
2011-06-15Allow nested qemu_bh_poll() after BH deletionKevin Wolf
Without this, qemu segfaults when a BH handler first deletes its BH and then calls another function which involves a nested qemu_bh_poll() call. This can be reproduced by generating an I/O error (e.g. with blkdebug) on an IDE device and using rerror/werror=stop to stop the VM. When continuing the VM, qemu segfaults.
