[Xen-devel] [PULL 3/4] xen-bus: Fix backend state transition on device reset

When a frontend wants to reset its state and the backend one, it
starts with setting "Closing", then waits for the backend (QEMU) to do
the same.

But when QEMU is setting "Closing" to its state, it triggers an event
(xenstore watch) that re-execute xen_device_backend_changed() and set
the backend state to "Closed". QEMU should wait for the frontend to
set "Closed" before doing the same.

Before setting "Closed" to the backend_state, we are also going to
check if there is a frontend. If that the case, when the backend state
is set to "Closing" the frontend should react and sets its state to
"Closing" then "Closed". The backend should wait for that to happen.
