[Qemu-devel] [PATCH] qemu-iothread: IOThread supports the GMainContext event loop
Posted by Wang yong, 17 weeks ago
From: Wang Yong<wang.yong155@zte.com.cn>

IOThread uses AioContext event loop and does not run a GMainContext.
Therefore,chardev cannot work in IOThread,such as the chardev is
used for colo-compare packets reception.

This patch makes the IOThread run the GMainContext event loop,
chardev and IOThread can work together.

Nice.  Just a note, I think an iothread should have its own (optional)
GMainContext accessed with iothread_get_g_main_context(iothread).  When
you call it for the first time, the iothread:

1) creates a GMainContext

2) adds the AioContext as a GSource in the GMainContext

3) asks iothread_run to switch from the AioContext loop to the
GMainContext loop


To simplify thread-safety:

1) the GMainContext can be wrapped with a GOnce

2) the GOnce callback can leave steps 2 and 3 to a bottom half.

Is it better to set iothread->loop to NULL after unref? If in the future a
second place adds g_main_loop_quit(), it can coordinate with iothread_stop by
checking iothread->loop == NULL.

Where is the matching g_main_context_ref? I think the one reference in
iothread->loop goes away with g_main_loop_unref. Is this line unnecessary?

Though I haven't seen the chardev changes yet, the general idea looks good to
me.
