Subject[PATCH] xen/blkback: fix disconnect while I/Os in flight
Date
Today disconnecting xen-blkback is broken in case there are still
I/Os in flight: xen_blkif_disconnect() will bail out early without
releasing all resources in the hope it will be called again when
the last request has terminated. This, however, won't happen as
xen_blkif_free() won't be called on termination of the last running
request: xen_blkif_put() won't decrement the blkif refcnt to 0 as
xen_blkif_disconnect() didn't finish before thus some xen_blkif_put()
calls in xen_blkif_disconnect() didn't happen.

To solve this deadlock xen_blkif_disconnect() and
xen_blkif_alloc_rings() shouldn't use xen_blkif_put() and
xen_blkif_get() but use some other way to do their accounting of
resources.

This at once fixes another error in xen_blkif_disconnect(): when it
returned early with -EBUSY for another ring than 0 it would call
xen_blkif_put() again for already handled rings on a subsequent call.
This will lead to inconsistencies in the refcnt handling.
