[PATCH] accel/xen: Fix DM state change notification in dm_restrict mode
Posted by David Woodhouse 11 months, 2 weeks ago
From: David Woodhouse <dwmw@amazon.co.uk>

When dm_restrict is set, QEMU isn't permitted to update the XenStore node
to indicate its running status. Previously, the xs_write() call would fail
but the failure was ignored.

However, in refactoring to allow for emulated XenStore operations, a new
call to xs_open() was added. That one didn't fail gracefully, causing a
fatal error when running in dm_restrict mode.

Partially revert the offending patch, removing the additional call to
xs_open() because the global 'xenstore' variable is still available; it
just needs to be used with qemu_xen_xs_write() now instead of directly
with the xs_write() libxenstore function.

Also make the whole thing conditional on !xen_domid_restrict. There's no
point even registering the state change handler to attempt to update the
XenStore node when we know it's destined to fail.

Fixes: ba2a92db1ff6 ("hw/xen: Add xenstore operations to allow redirection to internal emulation")
