Subject: Re: [PATCH] virtio_console: free unused buffers with virtio port


Adding Gal in CC [Forgot to add]

> 
> The commit a7a69ec0d8e4 ("virtio_console: free buffers after reset")
>   deffered detaching of unused buffer to virtio device unplug time.
> 
>   This causes unplug/replug of single port in virtio device with an
>   error "Error allocating inbufs\n". As we don't free the unused buffers
>   attached with the port. Re-plug the same port tries to allocate new
>   buffers in virtqueue and results in this error if queue is full.
> 
>   This patch removes the unused buffers in vq's when we unplug the port.
>   This is the best we can do as we cannot call device_reset because virtio
>   device is still active. This was the working behaviour before the change
>   introduced in commit b3258ff1d6.
