dd file to attached virtio disk, and hot remove this virtio disk, because this disk is in use, so it can not be removed. After that, guest can not be reboot in guest.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
guest kernel:kernel-2.6.18-238.5.1.el5
host qemu:qemu-kvm-

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start qemu rhel5.6.z guest, one boot disk, one virtio data disk
2.login guest, make partition and make file sytem on this data disk, and mount this disk to /mnt
3. dd big file to /mnt
#dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/test bs=1M count=2048 conv=fsync
4. before dd finish, hot remove this disk via qemu monitor
#(qemu) device_del $device_id
5. excute reboot command in guest
Actual results:
after step5, reboot message broadcast, but guest keep running, not restart.

Expected results:
guest can be reboot ok

Additional info:

Tried on RHEL6.1 guest, can be reboot ok after step 5.

tested on

host info:
# uname -r
#rpm -qa|grep kvm

guest info:
# uname -r

steps to test:

1./usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -m 4G -smp 2 -usbdevice tablet -drive file=rhel5.7-64,if=none,id=drive-virtio0,werror=stop,rerror=stop,cache=none -boot c -device virtio-blk-pci,drive=drive-virtio0,id=virtio-blk-pci0 -drive file=/root/2.qcow2,if=none,id=drive-virtio0-1,format=qcow2,cache=none -device virtio-blk-pci,drive=drive-virtio0-1,id=virtio-blk-pci0-1 -netdev tap,id=hostnet0,script=/etc/qemu-ifup -device virtio-net-pci,netdev=hostnet0,mac=02:00:ff:3F:2f:1f,bus=pci.0 -uuid `uuidgen` -name rhel57 -cdrom /dev/sr0 -monitor stdio -vnc :1

2. format a new disk and mount it in guest 
mkfs -t ext3 /dev/vdb in guest
mount /dev/vdb /mnt/

3.dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/test bs=1M count=2048 conv=fsync
4.(qemu) device_del virtio-blk-pci0-1

5. reboot guest in guest

guest can be reboot.

Based on above ,this bug can not be reproduced.
