Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1264726
During block-commit, stop guest, qemu will be unresponsive until commit job finished
Last modified: 2016-11-07 15:39:18 EST
I have been able to reproduce this bug, by doing a block-commit on the active layer (as written up in the description). This also does not occur upstream.
Looking in GDB, we are in aio_poll & bdrv_drain_all, but I have not pinpointed a particular patch as a fix.
This should not result in any data loss, as the job should run to completion, and even if stopped early the chain should still be intact. However, it is a bad user experience, as it is not known how long it will be until QEMU is responsive again (and it could potentially be a long time, if there is a lot of data to commit).
This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions
