The QEMU project is currently moving its bug tracking to another system.
For this we need to know which bugs are still valid and which could be
closed already. Thus we are setting the bug state to "Incomplete" now.

If the bug has already been fixed in the latest upstream version of QEMU,
then please close this ticket as "Fix released".

If it is not fixed yet and you think that this bug report here is still
valid, then you have two options:

1) If you already have an account on, please open a new ticket
for this problem in our new tracker here:

and then close this ticket here on Launchpad (or let it expire auto-
matically after 60 days). Please mention the URL of this bug ticket on
Launchpad in the new ticket on GitLab.

2) If you don't have an account on and don't intend to get
one, but still would like to keep this ticket opened, then please switch
the state back to "New" or "Confirmed" within the next 60 days (other-
wise it will get closed as "Expired"). We will then eventually migrate
the ticket automatically to the new system (but you won't be the reporter
of the bug in the new system and thus you won't get notified on changes

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.

  colo: pvm flush failed after svm killed

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
     Primary vm flush failed after killing svm, which leads primary vm guest filesystem unavailable.

  qemu versoin: 5.2.0
  host/guest os: CentOS Linux release 7.6.1810 (Core)

  Reproduce steps:
  1. create colo vm following
  2. kill secondary vm (don't remove nbd child from quorum on primary vm)and wait for a minute. the interval depends on guest os.
  result: primary vm file system shutdown because of flush cache error.

  After serveral tests, I found that qemu-5.0.0 worked well, and it's
  the commit;a=commit;h=883833e29cb800b4d92b5d4736252f4004885191(block:
  Flush all children in generic code) leads this change, and both
  virtio-blk and ide turned out to be bad.

  I think it's nbd(replication) flush failed leads bdrv_co_flush(quorum_bs) failed, here is the call stack.
  #0  bdrv_co_flush (bs=0x56242b3cc0b0=nbd_bs) at ../block/io.c:2856
  #1  0x0000562428b0f399 in bdrv_co_flush (bs=0x56242b3c7e00=replication_bs) at ../block/io.c:2920
  #2  0x0000562428b0f399 in bdrv_co_flush (bs=0x56242a4ad800=quorum_bs) at ../block/io.c:2920
  #3  0x0000562428b70d56 in blk_do_flush (blk=0x56242a4ad4a0) at ../block/block-backend.c:1672
  #4  0x0000562428b70d87 in blk_aio_flush_entry (opaque=0x7fd0980073f0) at ../block/block-backend.c:1680
  #5  0x0000562428c5f9a7 in coroutine_trampoline (i0=-1409269904, i1=32721) at ../util/coroutine-ucontext.c:173

  While i am not sure whether i use colo inproperly? Can we assume that
  nbd child of quorum immediately removed right after svm crashed? Or
  it's really a bug? Does the following patch fix? Help is needed!
  Thanks a lot!
