Re: [libvirt] [PATCH v2] snapshot: Don't hose list on deletion failure



ping

On 10/17/18 8:45 PM, Eric Blake wrote:
If qemuDomainSnapshotDiscard() fails for any reason (rare,
but possible with an ill-timed ENOMEM or if
qemuDomainSnapshotForEachQcow2() has problems talking to the
qemu guest monitor), then an attempt to retry the snapshot
deletion API will crash because we didn't undo the effects
of virDomainSnapshotDropParent() temporarily rearranging the
internal list structures, and the second attempt to drop
parents will dereference NULL.  Fix it by instead noting that
there are only two callers to qemuDomainSnapshotDiscard(),
and only one of the two callers wants the parent to be updated;
thus we can move the call to virDomainSnapshotDropParent()
into a code path that only gets executed on success.
