[libvirt] [PATCH] qemu: shared disks with cache=directsync should be safe for migration

Posted by Peng Hao 115 weeks ago
From: Hao Peng <peng.hao2@zte.com.cn>

At present shared disks can be migrated with either readonly or cache=none. But
cache=directsync should be safe for migration, because both cache=directsync and cache=none
don't use the host page cache, and cache=direct write through qemu block layer cache.
