[Xen-devel] [PATCH] xen-blkfront: emit KOBJ_OFFLINE uevent when detaching device

Devices are not unmounted inside a domU after a xl block-detach.

After xl block-detach, blkfront_closing() is called with state ==
XenbusStateConnected, it detects that the device is still in use and
only switches state to XenbusStateClosing. blkfront_closing() is called
a second time but returns immediately because state ==
XenbusStateClosing. Thus the device keeps being mounted inside the domU.

To fix this, emit a KOBJ_OFFLINE uevent even if the device has users.

With this patch, inside domU, udev has:

KERNEL[16994.526789] offline  /devices/vbd-51728/block/xvdb (block)
KERNEL[16994.796197] remove   /devices/virtual/bdi/202:16 (bdi)

UDEV  [16995.462549] remove   /devices/vbd-51728 (xen)

While without, it had:

UDEV  [30.867838] remove   /devices/vbd-51728 (xen)
