Luiz Capitulino - Oct. 24, 2012, 1:34 p.m.
From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>

Right now, stop followed by an incoming migration will let the
virtual machine start.  cont before an incoming migration instead
will fail.

This is bad because the actual behavior is not predictable; it is
racy with respect to the start of the incoming migration.  That's
because incoming migration is blocking, and thus will delay the
processing of stop/cont until the end of the migration.

In addition, there's nothing that really prevents the user from
typing the block device's passwords before incoming migration is
done, so returning the DeviceEncrypted error is also helpful in
the QMP case.

Both things can be fixed by just toggling the autostart variable when
stop/cont are called in INMIGRATE state.

Note that libvirt is currently working around the race by looping
if the MigrationExpected answer is returned.  After this patch, the
command will return right away without ever raising an error.
