[libvirt] xen+ssh:// "ghost" connections



Many thanks to Daniel Veillard for the Xen storage patch that was ACKed
here yesterday!  It does indeed seem to fix the crashing and lockup
problems I was seeingw hen performing many simultaneous operations.

At the moment, it may have exposed something else I find curious.  I
have a set of twelve VMs across two hosts (seven on one, five on the
other). At night they're all paused, and in the morning they're all
resumed at once.  For the past two evenings, the pause operation has
stalled for two of the VMs.  The first time it was one per host, and
just yesterday it was both on the 7-domain host.

These connections are mostly harmless.  The libvirtd still accepts new
connections, but I can see the stalled ssh/netcat processes still
running to forward the local socket.

I've attached (okay, pasted inline) a traceback of the daemon that had
two ghost connections, and from my inexperienced read-through it looks
as though libvirtd doesn't even know that anyone's trying to talk to it.

This isn't much to go on, but I felt it was better to post this than to
let it drop on the floor, since there does seem to be a pattern so far
(we'll see how things go tonight, and I'll be able to do more
destructive testing next week).
