      Revert r5636 to fix icount on hosts w/o high-res clocks · 357c692c
      aliguori authored
      Changeset r5636 changed the timers to run in the alarm callback.  The 
      alarm callback can only be called as frequently as the host alarm timer 
      fires.  For older Linux hosts and possibly non-Linux hosts, this can be 
      as high as a 1ms granularity.
      icount calculates the select timeout based on the next deadline and 
      select is usually capable of sleeping for a short period of time than 
      alarm timer granularity.  This means that changing the timer callbacks 
      to be based on alarm firing caused timers to fire much later than they 
      ought to when using icount.

      gdbstub: manage CPUs as threads (Jan Kiszka) · 880a7578
      aliguori authored
      This patch enhances QEMU's built-in debugger for SMP guest debugging.
      Using the thread support of the gdb remote protocol, each VCPU is mapped
      on a pseudo thread and exposed to the gdb frontend. This way you can
      easy switch the focus of gdb between the VCPUs and observe their states.
      On breakpoint hit, the focus is automatically adjusted just as for
      normal multi-threaded application under gdb control.
      Furthermore, the patch propagates breakpoint and watchpoint insertions
      or removals to all CPUs, not just the current one as it was the case so
      far. Without this, SMP guest debugging was practically unfeasible.

      Increase default IO timeout from 10ms to 5s · 0a1af395
      aliguori authored
      With the recent changes to the main loop, we no longer have unconditional
      polling.  This means we can now sleep in select() for much longer than we
      previously did.  This patch increases our select() sleep time from 10ms to 5s
      which is effectively unlimited since we're going to wake up sooner than that
      in almost all circumstances.
      With this patch, I see the number of wake-ups with an idle dynamic ticks guest
      drop from 80 per second to about 15 times per second.

      Implement "info chardev" command. (Gerd Hoffmann) · 5ccfae10
      aliguori authored
      This patch makes qemu keep track of the character devices in use and
      implements a "info chardev" monitor command to print a list.
      qemu_chr_open() sticks the devices into a linked list now.  It got a new
      argument (label), so there is a name for each device.  It also assigns a
      filename to each character device.  By default it just copyes the
      filename passed in.  Individual drivers can fill in something else
      though.  qemu_chr_open_pty() sets the filename to name of the pseudo tty
      Output looks like this:
        (qemu) info chardev
        monitor: filename=unix:/tmp/run.sh-26827/monitor,server,nowait
        serial0: filename=unix:/tmp/run.sh-26827/console,server

      Make DMA bottom-half driven (v2) · 492c30af
      aliguori authored
      The current DMA routines are driven by a call in main_loop_wait() after every
      This patch converts the DMA code to be driven by a constantly rescheduled
      bottom half.  The advantage of using a scheduled bottom half is that we can
      stop scheduling the bottom half when there no DMA channels are runnable.  This
      means we can potentially detect this case and sleep longer in the main loop.
      The only two architectures implementing DMA_run() are cris and i386.  For cris,
      I converted it to a simple repeating bottom half.  I've only compile tested
      this as cris does not seem to work on a 64-bit host.  It should be functionally
      identical to the previous implementation so I expect it to work.
      For x86, I've made sure to only fire the DMA bottom half if there is a DMA
      channel that is runnable.  The effect of this is that unless you're using sb16
      or a floppy disk, the DMA bottom half never fires.
      You probably should test this malc.  My own benchmarks actually show slight
      improvement by it's possible the change in timing could affect your demos.
      Since v1, I've changed the code to use a BH instead of a timer.  cris at least
      seems to depend on faster than 10ms polling.

      Make bottom halves more robust · 1b435b10
      aliguori authored
      Bottom halves are supposed to not complete until the next iteration of the main
      loop.  This is very important to ensure that guests can not cause stack
      overflows in the block driver code.  Right now, if you attempt to schedule a
      bottom half within a bottom half callback, you will enter an infinite loop.
      This patch uses the same logic that we use for the IOHandler loop to make the
      bottom half processing robust in list manipulation while in a callback.
      This patch also introduces idle scheduling for bottom halves.  qemu_bh_poll()
      returns an indication of whether any bottom halves were successfully executed.
      qemu_aio_wait() uses this to immediately return if a bottom half was executed
      instead of waiting for a completion notification.
      qemu_bh_schedule_idle() works around this by not reporting the callback has
      run in the qemu_bh_poll loop.  qemu_aio_wait() probably needs some refactoring
      but that would require a larger code audit.  idle scheduling seems like a good

      Expand cache= option and use write-through caching by default · 9f7965c7
      aliguori authored
      This patch changes the cache= option to accept none, writeback, or writethough
      to control the host page cache behavior.  By default, writethrough caching is
      now used which internally is implemented by using O_DSYNC to open the disk
      images.  When using -snapshot, writeback is used by default since data integrity
      it not at all an issue.
      cache=none has the same behavior as cache=off previously.  The later syntax is
      still supported by now deprecated.  I also cleaned up the O_DIRECT
      implementation to avoid many of the #ifdefs.
