Re: [libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: Check for ejected media during startup and migration

To check for disk status use 'info block' monitor command.
NB, the 'info block' is currently not updated yet. The qemu patches
that extend the monitor command are in a queue (that will be merged
head for-anthony
The commit that introduce requested feature:

Looks like this is in upstream qemu.git now, so that hurdle is out of the way; guess I'd better give my formal review :)

My original complaint was that this was polling-based, but you've convinced me that: 1) polling is necessary for libvirtd restart to learn the correct state (since events while libvirtd is down are lost), and 2) this doesn't touch user-visible XML, so the polling is limited to a few points in time, mainly where we were already talking to the monitor anyway.

If, in the future, qemu does add event tracking, we can then expose user-visible XML to expose this state to the user (whereas this patch just uses the information internally); at that point, we'd want to only expose XML if it can avoid polling (since we can't control how frequently dumpxml is called, and don't want to involve the monitor on every user-triggered dumpxml). But that's stuff for a later day, which does not affect this patch.

This does a monitor command for every disk, even for non-floppy non-cdrom disks, where we already know the answer (if the disk is not ejectable, then it can't be in the ejected state). Add a check before the memset():

 if (disk->device == VIR_DOMAIN_DISK_DEVICE_DISK)

+            while (*p) {
+                if (STRPREFIX(p, "removable=")) {

+                    else
+                        info->removable = p ? true : false;

I tend to write this as "!!p" or "p != NULL", rather than the longer "p ? true : false", but that's not a show-stopper.

I'm comfortable giving:

ACK with nits fixed.
