Description Hanna Reitz 2017-05-19 14:39:33 UTC
Description of problem:

Some block drivers (namely blkdebug, blkverify, blkreplay) sometiems close their assocated file node if an error occurs during initialization. This is unnecessary, and the way this is done is incorrect, leading to potentially invalid memory accesses.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

$ qemu-img info --image-opts driver=blkdebug,image.driver=null-co,align=42

Actual results:

[1]    23725 segmentation fault (core dumped)  qemu-img info --image-opts driver=blkdebug,image.driver=null-co,align=42

Expected results:

qemu-img: Could not open 'driver=blkdebug,image.driver=null-co,align=42': Invalid alignment

Additional info:

Fixed in upstream commit de234897b60e034ba94b307fc289e2dc692c9251.
