Hi all,

I find a potential Use-after-free in QEMU 6.2.0, which is in test_blockjob_common_drain_node() (./tests/unit/test-bdrv-drain.c).

Specifically, at line 880, the variable 'scr' is released by the bdrv_unref(). However, at line 881, it is subsequently used as the 1st parameter of the function bdrv_set_backing_hd(). As a result, an UAF bug may be triggered.

880    bdrv_unref(src);

881    bdrv_set_backing_hd(src, src_backing, &error_abort);

I believe that the problem can be fixed by invoking bdrv_unref() after the call of bdrv_set_backing_hd() rather than before it.

---    bdrv_unref(src);
881    bdrv_set_backing_hd(src, src_backing, &error_abort);

I'm looking forward to your confirmation.
