> Looks good.  Now I wonder about the rest of this function, though. qemuio_command() acquires the context on its own.  So the only thing left that looks a bit like it may want to have the context locked is blk_insert_bs().  Most of its callers seem to run in the BB’s native context, so they don’t have to acquire it; but blk_exp_add() has the context held around it, so... should this place, too?

Seems you are right. blk_insert_bs() calls bdrv_root_attach_child(), and bdrv_root_attach_child() is documented so "The caller must hold the AioContext lock @child_bs".

I'll see, what could be done here. adding one more section looks bad. Creating nested aio-context acquire when Paolo is working on removing aio context lock doesn't seem good too..
