Avi Kivity - May 5, 2009, 12:40 p.m.
Commit 641636d ("qcow2 corruption: Fix alloc_cluster_link_l2"; 4df8f71 on
stable-0.10) exposes a bug with concurrent allocating qcow2 writes: the
writes will trigger a call to free_any_clusters() and corrupt the image.

As a temporary workaround until a real fix is written, this patch serializes
writes to avoid the issue.  With this, I can install Fedora 10 on a virtio
disk.
