[PATCH 00/10] tools/xenstored: Bug fixes + Improve Live-Update

From: Julien Grall <jgrall@xxxxxxxxxx>

Hi all,

At the moment, Live-Update will, by default, not proceed if there are
in-flight transactions. It is possible force it by passing -F but this
will break any connection with in-flight transactions.

There are PV drivers out that may never terminate some transaction. On
host running such guest, we would need to use -F. Unfortunately, this
also risks to break well-behaving guests (and even dom0) because
Live-Update will happen as soon as the timeout is hit.

This series aims to allow to Live-Update more safely even when the option
-F is used.

The first part of the series contains a few fixes for bug found while
testing Live-Update.


Julien Grall (10):
  MAINTAINERS: Add myself as reviewers for tools/xenstore
  tools/xenstored: Introduce lu_get_connection() and use it
  tools/xenstore: Don't assume conn->in points to the LU request
  tools/xenstored: Limit the number of requests a connection can delay
  tools/xenstored: xenstored_core.h should include fcntl.h
  tools/xenstored: Introduce a wrapper for conn->funcs->can_{read,
  tools/xenstored: delay_request: don't assume conn->in == in
  tools/xenstored: Extend restore code to handle multiple input buffer
  tools/xenstored: Dump delayed requests
  tools/xenstored: Delay new transaction while Live-Update is pending
