[PATCH v3 00/25] virtio: fix spec compliance issues

From: Michael S. Tsirkin
Date: Sun Oct 12 2014 - 07:43:23 EST

Rusty, please review this, and consider for this merge window.

This fixes the following virtio spec compliance issues:
1. on restore, drivers use device before setting ACKNOWLEDGE and DRIVER bits
2. on probe, drivers aren't prepared to handle config interrupts
arriving before probe returns
3. on probe, drivers use device before DRIVER_OK it set

Note that 1 is a clear violation of virtio spec 0.9 and 1.0,
so I am proposing the fix for stable. OTOH 2 is against 1.0 rules but
is a known documented bug in many drivers, so let's fix it going
forward, but it does not seem to be worth it to backport
the changes.

An error handling bugfix for virtio-net and a fix for a
theoretical race condition in virtio scsi is also included.

2 is merely a theoretical race condition, but it seems important
to address to make sure that changes to address 3 do not introduce

I also included patch to drop scan callback use from virtio
scsi: using this callback creates asymmetry between probe
and resume, and we actually had to add code comments so
people can figure out the flow. Code flow becomes clearer
with the new API.

After this change, the only user of the scan callback is virtio rng.
It's possible to modify it trivially and then drop scan callback
from core, but I'm rather inclined to look at ways to
make some rng core changes so that we don't need to
have so many variables tracking device state.
So this is deferred for now.

virtio-net: drop config_mutex
virtio_net: minor cleanup
virtio: add API to enable VQs early
virtio_net: enable VQs early
virtio_blk: enable VQs early
virtio_console: enable VQs early
9p/trans_virtio: enable VQs early
