Bug description:

  virsh command is hang if there is broken VM on broken NFS

  This is affected to Xenial, UCA-Mitaka

  [Test Case]

  1. deploy VM with NFS storage ( running )
  2. block NFS via iptables
  - iptables -A OUTPUT -d NFS_SERVER_IP -p tcp --dport 2049 -j DROP ( on host machine )
  3. virsh blkdeviotune generic hda => hang
  4. virsh domstats => hang
  5. virsh list => lang

  After patch, we can command domstats and list with short timeout. and libvirt-bin needs to be restarted. so if there are many VMs it will be affected short time while it is restarting.


  This bug is fixed in redhat bug report[1] and mailing list[2] and git

  and it is merged 1.3.5 upstream
