after this bug fixed, QE need to verify both the IDE and AHCI, both bug 918831 and bug 852348.

I've patched this as far as the size will be updated on a soft reboot, but currently despite the rescan command (and observing that new, updated IDENTIFY information was resent to the guest OS) fdisk -l does not recognize the new updated size.

#1 - echo 1 > /sys/block/sda/device/rescan does not trigger a new IDENTIFY packet to be requested.
#2 - partprobe, however, does.
#3 - after running both, in either order, Linux refuses to observe a change in size until a soft reboot.

Guest is Linux 3.11.10-301.fc20.x86_64

I can actually get fdisk to see the new values if I do this:
# echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host5/scan
but that has the unsavory effect of re-materializing the drive as /dev/sdb instead of /dev/sda, which gums up the works pretty badly.

fix is posted upstream, will backport pending review.

Reproduce this bug on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.0-1.el7.

After block resize, then rescan scsi host/reboot guest the size of ide disk didn't change.

Test this bug on qemu-kvm-rhev-2.1.2-5.el7.x86_64.



1. Boot vm with ide disk.
-drive file=/home/storage0.raw,format=raw,if=none,id=ide-disk,cache=none,werror=stop,rerror=stop,aio=native \
-device ide-drive,bus=ide.0,unit=0,drive=ide-disk,id=ide_data \

2. block_resize.
(qemu) block_resize ide-disk 20G

3. Check the size of disk image.
[root@dhcp-11-16 home]# qemu-img info storage0.raw 
image: storage0.raw
file format: raw
virtual size: 20G (21474836480 bytes)
disk size: 454M

4. Rescan scsi host inside guest.
# echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/host0/scan

5. Check the size in guest by "fdisk -l"
Disk /dev/sda: 21.5 GB, 21474836480 bytes, 41943040 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Also tested qcow2 format.
For raw format, both shrink and enlarge works well.
For qcow2 format, enlarge works well.
