      Some whacking of the event system. I have implemented the addressing · 8305021f
      Leigh B. Stoller authored
      scheme that we discussed in email. Notifications and subscriptions now
      take an "address_tuple" argument (I know, crappy name) that is a
      structure that looks like this:
      
      	char		*site;		/* Which Emulab site. God only */
      	char		*expt;		/* Project and experiment IDs */
      	char		*group;		/* User defined group of nodes */
      	char		*host;		/* A specific host */
      	char		*objtype;	/* LINK, TRAFGEN, etc ... */
              char		*objname;	/* link0, cbr0, cbr1, etc ... */
              char		*eventtype;	/* START, STOP, UP, DOWN, etc ... */
      
      These can be a specific value, ADDRESSTUPLE_ANY if you are a
      subscriber, or ADDRESSTUPLE_ALL if you are a producer. The reason for
      the distinction is that you can optimize the match expression with the
      extra bit of information, and the above structure can make for a
      fairly lengthy match expression, which takes more time of course.
      You should use address_tuple_alloc() and address_tuple_free() rather
      than allocating them yourself. Note that host above is actually the
      ipaddr of control interface. This turns out to be more convenient
      since free nodes do not have virtual names.
      
      Also added a new tbgen directly. This directory includes 3 programs in
      the making:
      
      tbmevd: Is the Testbed Master Event Daemon, to be run on boss and will
      handle TBCONTROL events (reboot, reload, etc). It is just a shell of a
      program right now, that takes the events but does not do anything
      useful with them. Have not defined what the events are, and what DB
      state will be modified.
      
      tbmevc: Is the Testbed Master Event Client (akin to tmcc). It
      generates TBCONTROL events which the tbmevd will pick up and do
      something useful with. This program is intended to be wrapped by a
      perl script that will ask the tmcd for the name of the boss (running
      the event daemon).
      
      sample-client: This is a little client to demonstrate how to connect
      to the event system and use the address tuple to subscribe to events,
      and then how to get information out of notifications.
      
      Note that I have not created a proper build environment yet, so new
      programs should probably go in the event dir for now, and link using
      the same approach as in tbgen/GNUmakefile.in.

      Rewrote event scheduler. Event system clients may now call · 29563eb0
      Ian Murdock authored
      event_schedule (see event library), which essentially operates as a
      deferred event_notify. event_schedule accepts a notification and a
      firing time, alters the notification to change the type attribute to
      EVENT_SCHEDULE and add a firing time attribute, and then sends the
      altered notification using event_notify.  The event scheduler
      subscribes to EVENT_SCHEDULE notifications. As they arrive,
      it restores the type in the notification to that of the
      original event and enqueues the notification in a priority queue
      for firing at the indicated time. When the time arrives, the
      scheduler removes the notification from the queue and resends it
      using event_notify.
      
      With these changes, the event system now supports dynamic events.
