Right, what I was thinking of was more like new requests coming in
while bdrv_drain_all() is still running. If that happened, the result
after bdrv_drain_all() wouldn't be different, but if external file
descriptors are still active and the guest keeps sending requests, it
could take forever until it returns.

But that part is addressed by the AioContext lock, I think.

Yes, of course.
