[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] libxl: fix migration of PV and PVH domUs with and without qemu

Posted by Olaf Hering 10 weeks ago
If a domU has a qemu-xen instance attached, it is required to call qemus
"xen-save-devices-state" method. Without it, the receiving side of a PV or
PVH migration may be unable to lock the image:

xen be: qdisk-51712: xen be: qdisk-51712: error: Failed to get "write" lock
error: Failed to get "write" lock
xen be: qdisk-51712: xen be: qdisk-51712: initialise() failed
initialise() failed

To fix this bug, libxl__domain_suspend_device_model() and
libxl__domain_resume_device_model() have to be called not only for HVM,
but also if the active device_model is QEMU_XEN.

Unfortunately, libxl__domain_build_info_setdefault() hardcodes
b_info->device_model_version to QEMU_XEN if it does not know it any
better. This breaks domUs without a device_model. libxl__qmp_stop() would
wait 10 seconds in qmp_open() for a qemu that will never appear.  During
this long timeframe the domU remains in state paused on the sending side.
As a result network connections may be dropped. Once this bug is fixed as
well, by just removing that assumption, there is no code to actually
initialise b_info->device_model_version.

There is a helper function libxl__need_xenpv_qemu(), which is used in
various places to decide if any device_model has to be spawned. This
function can not be used as is, just to fill b_info->device_model_version,
because store_libxl_entry() was already called earlier. Update this
function to receive a domid to work with, instead of reading xenstore.

Rearrange the code and initialize b_info->device_model_version in
libxl__domain_build_info_setdefault() per DOMAIN_TYPE.

Update initiate_domain_create() to set b_info->device_model_version if it
was not set earlier, using the updated libxl__need_xenpv_qemu().

Introduce LIBXL_DEVICE_MODEL_VERSION_NONE_REQUIRED for PV and PVH that
have no need for a device_model.

Update existing users of libxl__need_xenpv_qemu() to use
b_info->device_model_version for their check if a device_model is needed.

v02:
- update wording in a comment
- remove stale goto in domcreate_launch_dm
- initialize ret in libxl__need_xenpv_qemu

I have to admit I'm not that familiar with the migration code, and
it's fairly complex, so take this with a pinch of salt.

Wouldn't it be easier to leave libxl__need_xenpv_qemu alone and just
use the contents of the migration stream to decide whether to launch a
QEMU for the PV backends or not? ie: just parsing the domain config on
the migration stream should be enough for the destination side to
decide whether a QEMU is needed in order to handle the PV backends?

Is it really worth it to change the if into a switch? AFAICT it would
be simpler to just remove the else branch from the existing if.

I think the above call is wrong, libxl__need_xenpv_qemu expects to get
the domid of the toolstack domain (ie: the domain running this code),
not the domain being created.

AFAICT at this point device_model_version will either be set to one of
the versions (either trad or upstream) or to none. So you
could initialize need_qemu to false and set if to true if
device_model_version != LIBXL_DEVICE_MODEL_VERSION_NONE_REQUIRED.

The above calls gets the domid of the current domain running this code

So, how do I actually test such setups? It seems a driver domain is
required. According to xl-disk-configuration(5) I may need to specify
backend=$domU. Is there some guide how to configure such thing?

While my question still stands, I wonder if the statement regarding
libxl__need_xenpv_qemu is correct.

Are you saying the current users of libxl__need_xenpv_qemu (libxl__dm_check_start,
spawn_stub_launch_dm and domcreate_launch_dm) do not only run in dom0, but
also somewhere else?

Hm, I'm afraid I'm not able to find anything, I could swear I've
added something to the wiki when this was implemented.

Anyway, you need to create a domU and add driver_domain=1 to the
domain xl.cfg. Inside this domU you need `xl devd` running, there's an
init script for it. Note you will have to install the Xen toolstack
inside this domU. That would be the domU serving the backends.

Then you create another domU that would have a disk line with
backend=<backend domU> and have the disk image available in the
backend domU.

That should be enough to get it working as a test.

> While my question still stands, I wonder if the statement regarding

Hm, TBH I'm not sure libxl__need_xenpv_qemu is still used by driver
domains (devd). AFAICT the decision whether to use qdisk or not should
be set on the disk configuration line manually, and then the driver
domain just launches a qemu instance when required (ie: when using
qdisk).

libxl__spawn_qdisk_backend can indeed be called from driver domains
(!= dom0). See add_device which gets called by backend_watch_callback
from the flow of `xl devd`.

Thanks, Roger.

And if it is indeed running somewhere else, would libxl__get_domain_configuration
provide the content of b_info.device_model_version?
At least in my testing /var/lib/xen/userdata-d.domid.uuid.libxl-json has no such
info in the "b_info" field.

I think that is done anyway. How would the receiving side know what to do?

I will see how to handle the stubdom case.

Hm, OK. I will wait for v3 with the domid stuff fixed.

I think it will be as simple as this. In the end b_info.device_model_version
must be set prior the call to store_libxl_entry.

The patch below looks sensible to me, and it's more like what I was

Since libxl__need_xenpv_qemu can fail, what about doing something
like:

switch ( (ret = libxl__need_xenpv_qemu(gc, d_config)) ) {
case 1:
    d_config->b_info.device_model_version =
    LIBXL_DEVICE_MODEL_VERSION_QEMU_XEN;
    break;

case 0:
    break;

default:
    LOGEVD(ERROR, ret, domid, "Unable to determine QEMU requisite");
    goto error_out;
}

Note the error message wording is not very good, probably an English
speaker would come up with a better message.

Thanks for looking into this!

The remaining question is if a new state should be introduced,
or if LIBXL_DEVICE_MODEL_VERSION_UNKNOWN would be good to state the fact
that no device model is required.
