With unknown good reasons, the attribute "bus" of scsi device

virDomainDiskDefAssignAddress).

Though we might need to change the algorithm to honor "bus"
and "target" too, that's a different issue. The address generator

for scsi host device in this patch just follows the unknown
good reasons, only considering the "controller" and "unit".
It walks through all scsi controllers and their units, to see
if the address $controller:0:0:$unit can be used, if found
one, it sits on it, otherwise, it creates a new controller
(actually the controller is implicitly created by someone
else), and sits on $new_controller:0:0:0 instead.

v1 - v2:
   * A new helper virDomainSCSIDriveAddressIsUsed
   * Move virDomainDefMaybeAddHostdevSCSIcontroller
   * More comments
   * Add testing.
   * problems fixed with the testing:
     1) s/nscsi_controllers + 1/nscsi_controllers/,
     2) Add the controller implicitly after a scsi hostdev def
        parsing, as it can use a new scsi controller index
        (nscsi_controllers), which should be added implicitly.
First pass of code is found at:

FYI: The previous code cared that a wide address was being used when
returning true - this code doesn't.  Just making sure that change is
intentional.  Essentially, 7 cannot be used.  The comments above the
code talk about wide/narrow which it seems becomes irrelevant. The
reality seems to be that you are avoiding using 7 altogether because
it's reserved for the controller itself, correct?  Regardless of whether
a wide or narrow.  The controller itself uses the unit number of the
maximum value of the narrow band.  At least that's how I'm reading it.

You are right, will update the comment.

Actually no, I was confused. For the narrow scsi bus, the unit can't be 7,
so I just shortened the statement by removing the checking for max_unit == 16

I don't know why the units on the narrow scsi bus is 7 though, it should be 8
instead. See:

Although it looked odd initially, I think I convinced myself the logic
is OK. Initially, nscsi_controllers = 0;

If none exist, then 'controller = 0' and 'units' are assigned until
full, right?

Right.

If one exists and is full, then 'controller = 1' and is
placed at unit = 0.

Right.


NOTE:
Using next_unit to break the loop means this code could be rewritten as:

hostdev->info->addr.drive.controller = (next_unit >= 0 ?
def->controllers[i]->idx :
                                         nscsi_controllers)
hostdev->info->addr.drive.bus = 0;
hostdev->info->addr.drive.target = 0;
hostdev->info->addr.drive.unit = (next_unit >= 0 ? next_unit : 0);

Although one could argue setting "= 0;" is redundant due to allocation.

Compact. I will consider your suggestion for the loop in v3.

Still don't understand the test setup 100%, but I think for the purposes
of what you're trying to prove that the defined unit=5 above should be 1
or 2 and then ensure that '3' gets created to prove the algorithm will
find one at '1' or '2'.  As it stands all that seems to be provided is
the scsi10 will use '3' even though '5' exists.

Yes, I want to prove it will allocate the smallest available unit number,
instead of increasing on top of the current largest unit number.

/me should document this in the commit log.


Curious to understand why the 2nd controller gets created without the
"model='virtio-scsi'"?  Does it matter? Does creating a controller on
the fly like this would seem to imply that the controllers would be alike.

It's a problem actually, I intended to write a RFC for it, but not posted
yet. Assuming that one wants to hotplug a virtio-scsi disk with XML:

    <disk type='file' device='disk'>
      <driver name='qemu' type='raw'/>
      <source file='/var/lib/libvirt/images/f18_sdb.img'/>
      <target dev='sda' bus='scsi'/>
      <address type='drive' controller='1' bus='0' target='0' unit='0'/>
    </disk>

If there is no scsi controller with index "1", the implicitly added scsi controller will use the default scsi controller model "lsilogic" (true for qemu/kvm). That's
obviously not what the user wants.

Though we provide the way to hotplug a controller, one can hotplug a
controller first, and then hotplug the disk. But it's just a bit better, as it still
needs some manual work.

There are many other problems, I'm going to write them out when posting
the RFC to solve the problem (I don't have a good thought yet though).


Also what is the delineation between a narrow vs. wide bus in the xml?
It seems you'd want to have a test that ensures that a wide scsi bus
skips unit=7 when adding 10 devices, right?

I wanted to add test for the wide scsi bus too, but the test qemu only supports narrow scsi bus, I didn't dig it more, as I thought it may not be deserved to do. The 10 devices in this test is to prove a new controller can be added, and the
address can be allocated as expected.

QEMU driver never supported wide SCSI bus yet. The "wide scsi bus" support
was added by Matthias for ESX driver. See:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/libvir-list/2010-June/msg00452.html

I do think qemu driver should support too, but I have to figure out how to
detect it from qemu first, and will be a later patch...

Will post v3 with your suggestion on the for loop. Thanks.
