From: Tianren Zhang <>

The stop process is not finished until bdrv_flush_all
is done. Some users (e.g., libvirt) detect the STOP
event and invokes some lock release logic to revoke
the disk lock held by current qemu when such event is
emitted. In such case, if the bdrv_flush_all is after
the stop event, it's possible that the disk lock is
released while the qemu is still waiting for I/O.
Therefore, it's better to have the stop event generated
after the whole stop process is done, so we can
guarantee to users that the stop process is finished
when they get the STOP event.
