 - NACK. This patch  is a guarenteed deadlock.
+ this patch helps us to see a deadlock, which previously was invisible because of segfault ;)
 
You can't have one public
driver API method, calling into another directly. openvzDomainSetVcpus()
will attempt to lock the driver mutex, and the VM mutex, and then deadlock
because openvzDomainCreateXML/openvzDomainDefineXML already hold the
VM mutex.

The way to address this is to move the backend logic out of the
openvzDomainSetVcpus method, into a helper that is passed a pre-locked
virDomainObjPtr instance. This helper can be called by public driver
APIs openvzDomainSetVcpus and openvzDomainCreateXML  and
openvzDomainDefineXML.

eg, the helper would look like

  static int openvzDomainSetVcpusInternal(virConnectPtr conn,
                                          virDomainObjPtr vm)
       char   str_vcpus[32];
       const char *prog[] = { VZCTL, "--quiet", "set", PROGRAM_SENTINAL,
                          "--cpus", str_vcpus, "--save", NULL };
       pcpus = openvzGetNodeCPUs();
       if (pcpus > 0 && pcpus < nvcpus)
           nvcpus = pcpus;

       snprintf(str_vcpus, 31, "%d", nvcpus);
       str_vcpus[31] = '\0';

       openvzSetProgramSentinal(prog, vm->def->name);
       if (virRun(dom->conn, prog, NULL) < 0) {
           openvzError(dom->conn, VIR_ERR_INTERNAL_ERROR,
                       _("Could not exec %s"), VZCTL);
           retur n-1;
       }

       vm->def->vcpus = nvcpus;
       return 0;
  }

The public API would look like


static int openvzDomainSetVcpus(virDomainPtr dom, unsigned int nvcpus) {
   struct openvz_driver *driver = dom->conn->privateData;
   virDomainObjPtr vm;
   unsigned int pcpus;
   int ret = -1;

   openvzDriverLock(driver);
   vm = virDomainFindByUUID(&driver->domains, dom->uuid);
   openvzDriverUnlock(driver);
   if (!vm) {
       openvzError(dom->conn, VIR_ERR_INVALID_DOMAIN,
                   "%s", _("no domain with matching uuid"));
       goto cleanup;
   }

   if (nvcpus <= 0) {
       openvzError(dom->conn, VIR_ERR_INTERNAL_ERROR,
                   "%s", _("VCPUs should be >= 1"));
       goto cleanup;
   }

   openvzDomainSetVcpusInternal(vm, nvcpus);

   ret = 0;

cleanup:
   if (vm)
       virDomainObjUnlock(vm);
   return ret;
}


Similarly the Create/DefineXML methods calling openvzDomainSetVcpusInternal
Thanks, this seems to work (see attached patch).

Daniel
