    monitor: Decouple terminals (Jan Kiszka) · 731b0364
    aliguori authored
    Currently all registered (and activate) monitor terminals work in
    broadcast mode: Everyone sees what someone else types on some other
    terminal and what the monitor reports back. This model is broken when
    you have a management monitor terminal that is automatically operated
    and some other terminal used for independent guest inspection. Such
    additional terminals can be multiplexed device channels or a gdb
    frontend connected to QEMU's stub.
    Therefore, this patch decouples the buffers and states of all monitor
    terminals, allowing the user to operate them independently. It finally
    starts to use the 'mon' parameter that was introduced earlier with the
    API rework. It also defines the default monitor: the first instantance
    that has the MONITOR_IS_DEFAULT flag set, and that is the monitor
    created via the "-monitor" command line switch (or "vc" if none is
    As the patch requires to rework the monitor suspension interface, it
    also takes the freedom to make it "truely" suspending (so far suspending
    meant suppressing the prompt, but inputs were still processed).
