It’d be great, if you added more details how to test it.

Thanks for your fast reply, I will send the v2 patch with a better
commit message.

[SeaBIOS] [PATCH v2] virtio-scsi: initialize the ctrl and event vq

Posted by Li Feng 3 weeks, 3 days ago
Currently, virtio-scsi doesn't support any control or event message, this patch
adds the basic initialization.

Some backends need this feature, like dpdk/spdk vhost-user backend.

Reproduce:
1. Start spdk vhost-user-scsi backend;
2. Create a vm with a SCSI vhost-user-scsi disk and start the vm;
3. Mount an iso to the vm without an OS;
3. Stop the vhost-user-scsi backend;
5. Vhost-user-scsi backend will crash before exiting when cleaning the resources.

The reason is that the seabios virtio-scsi only initializes the req vq,
then the spdk/dpdk treats it a not good session, it's hard to handle this tricky
issue from dpdk architecture.

IMHO this must be fixed in vhost-user-scsi no matter what.  Host
processes crashing in case the guest doesn't behave as expected
is a security problem.

What is the exact problem here?  vhost-user-scsi trying to send a
hotplug event (when adding the iso, probably as virtual cdrom) and
seabios not listening?

That alone doesn't allow receiving events (no recv buffers added).  Also
note that seabios does not support hotplugging devices, so the only
thing we could do with those events is to throw them away.

take care,
  Gerd

Yes, the backend should be fixed.
However, we may as well initialize these two vqs, because other virtio
frontend drivers have implemented these
as I know. It's good for compatibility.

No, hotplug is another question I should handle.
This crash is that some vring(controlq, eventq) aren't initialized
done from vhost-user aspect.
 And spdk/dpdk handles incoming events from theses queues, but the
vhost-user device isn't RUNNING
 status, becase some vqs are not ready, so the destruction is bad.

Yes, from the spec, I should put some recv buffers here, so events
could be written here.
Here just initialized it, then qemu vhost-user device will send the
VHOST_USER_KICK to drive the vhost-user backend.

BTW, do you accept a future patch that implements the virtio SCSI hotplug?

Thanks.

Is this required by the virtio spec?  I don't think so.

The device should look at the status bits.

https://docs.oasis-open.org/virtio/virtio/v1.1/csprd01/virtio-v1.1-csprd01.html#x1-930001

When the driver sets DRIVER_OK it is done setting up virtqueues.
When some of them are not ready the driver apparently doesn't want
use them.

> BTW, do you accept a future patch that implements the virtio SCSI hotplug?

Well, the problem with hotplug is that the BIOS interfaces have been
created in the 1980-ies and are not designed with hotplug in mind.  So
retrofitting hotplug support into that is a rather hard problem and the
benefits are questionable given that the BIOS typically runs only for a
very short time, before the real operating system takes over control.

take care,
  Gerd

Yes, the spec don't require this.
