[PATCH v4 0/4] Add full zoned storage emulation to qcow2 driver
Posted by Sam Li 5 months, 1 week ago
This patch series add a new extension - zoned format - to the
qcow2 driver thereby allowing full zoned storage emulation on
the qcow2 img file. Users can attach such a qcow2 file to the
guest as a zoned device.

Write pointer are preserved in the zoned metadata. It will be
recovered after power cycle. Meanwhile, any open (implicit or
explicit) zone will show up as closed.

Zone states are in memory. Read-only and offline states are
device-internal events, which are not considerred in qcow2
emulation for simplicity. The other zone states
(closed, empty, full) can be inferred from write poiner
values, presistent across QEMU reboots. The open states are
kept in memory using open zone lists.

To create a qcow2 file with zoned format, use command like this:
$ qemu-img create -f qcow2 test.qcow2 -o size=768M -o
zone_size=64M -o zone_capacity=64M -o nr_conv_zones=0 -o
max_append_sectors=512 -o max_open_zones=0 -o max_active_zones=0
-o zone_model=1

Then add it to the QEMU command line:
    -blockdev node-name=drive1,driver=qcow2,file.driver=file,file.filename=../qemu/test.qcow2 \
    -device virtio-blk-pci,drive=drive1 \

v3->v4:
- use QLIST for implicit, explicit open zones management [Stefan]
- keep zone states in memory and drop state bits in wp metadata structure [Damien, Stefan]
- change zone resource management and iotests accordingly
- add tracing for number of implicit zones
- address review comments [Stefan, Markus]:
  * documentation, config, style

v2->v3:
- drop zoned_profile option [Klaus]
- reformat doc comments of qcow2 [Markus]
- add input validation and checks for zoned information [Stefan]
- code style: format, comments, documentation, naming [Stefan]
- add tracing function for wp tracking [Stefan]
- reconstruct io path in check_zone_resources [Stefan]

v1->v2:
- add more tests to qemu-io zoned commands
- make zone append change state to full when wp reaches end
- add documentation to qcow2 zoned extension header
- address review comments (Stefan):
  * fix zoned_mata allocation size
  * use bitwise or than addition
  * fix wp index overflow and locking
  * cleanups: comments, naming

Sam Li (4):
  docs/qcow2: add the zoned format feature
  qcow2: add configurations for zoned format extension
  qcow2: add zoned emulation capability
  iotests: test the zoned format feature for qcow2 file
