[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 for-2.13 0/3] net: Get rid of 'vlan'
Posted by Thomas Huth, 6 days ago
The 'vlan' term caused a lot of confusion and misconfigurations in the
past. The parameter has been marked as deprecated since QEMU v2.9.0, so
it's now time to finally remove the parameter and use the better word "hub"
in the remaining spots that actually mean the QEMU emulated hub feature.

v3:
 - Some rewordings in qemu-doc and net.json according to Paolo's suggestions

v2:
 - Added first patch to actually remove the deprecated 'vlan' parameter
   (instead of only updating the wording in the sources and docs)

Thomas Huth (3):
  net: Remove the deprecated "vlan" parameter
  net: Get rid of 'vlan' terminology and use 'hub' instead in the source
    files
  net: Get rid of 'vlan' terminology and use 'hub' instead in the doc
    files

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 for-2.13 1/3] net: Remove the deprecated "vlan" parameter
Posted by Thomas Huth, 6 days ago
It's been marked as deprecated since QEMU v2.9.0, so that should have
been enough time for everybody to either just drop unnecessary "vlan=0"
parameters, to switch to the modern -device + -netdev syntax for connecting
guest NICs with host network backends, or to switch to the "hubport" netdev
in case hubs are really wanted instead.

I mean a 1:1 connection between the backend and frontend here, without a
hub inbetween. Can you think of a better wording?

"use -nic unless you need a hub"?

[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 for-2.13 2/3] net: Get rid of 'vlan' terminology and use 'hub' instead in the source files
Posted by Thomas Huth, 6 days ago
'vlan' is very confusing since it does not mean something like IEEE
802.1Q, but rather emulated hubs, so let's switch to that terminology
instead.

Posted by Thomas Huth, 6 days ago
'vlan' is very confusing since it does not mean something like IEEE
802.1Q, but rather emulated hubs, so let's switch to that terminology
instead. While we're at it, move the subsection about hub a little bit
downward in the documentation (it's not as important anymore as it was
before the invention of the -netdev parameter), and extend it a little
bit.
