Subject: [PATCH 07/10] block: Fix AioContext switch for bs->drv == NULL

O-Subject: [RHEL-8.1.0 qemu-kvm PATCH 1/1] block: Fix AioContext switch for bs->drv == NULL
Bugzilla: 1716347

Even for block nodes with bs->drv == NULL, we can't just ignore a
bdrv_set_aio_context() call. Leaving the node in its old context can
mean that it's still in an iothread context in bdrv_close_all() during
shutdown, resulting in an attempted unlock of the AioContext lock which
we don't hold.

This is an example stack trace of a related crash:

The reproducer I used is a qcow2 image on gluster volume, where the
virtual disk size (4 GB) is larger than the gluster volume size (64M),
so we can easily trigger an ENOSPC. This backend is assigned to a
virtio-blk device using an iothread, and then from the guest a
'dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/vda bs=1G count=1' causes the VM to stop
because of an I/O error. qemu_gluster_co_flush_to_disk() sets
bs->drv = NULL on error, so when virtio-blk stops the dataplane, the
block nodes stay in the iothread AioContext. A 'quit' monitor command
issued from this paused state crashes the process.
