2014-03-13main-loop: Suppress "I/O thread spun" warnings for qtestPeter Maydell
When running under qtest we don't actually have any vcpu threads to be starved, so the warning about the I/O thread spinning isn't relevant, and the way qtest manipulates the simulated clock means the warning is produced a lot as a false positive. Suppress it if qtest_enabled(), so 'make check' output is less noisy.

2013-09-17slirp: set mainloop timeout with more precise valueLiu Ping Fan
If slirp needs to emulate tcp timeout, then the timeout value for mainloop should be more precise, which is determined by slirp's fasttimo or slowtimo.

2013-06-12main-loop: do not include slirp/slirp.h, use libslirp.h insteadMichael Tokarev
The header slirp/slirp.h is an internal header for slirp, and main-loop.c does not use internals from there. Instead, it uses public functions (slirp_update_timeout(), slirp_pollfds_fill() etc) which are declared in slirp/libslirp.h. Including slirp/slirp.h is somewhat dangerous since it redefines errno on WIN32, so any file including it may misbehave wrt errno. Unfortunately libslirp isn't self-contained, it needs declaration of struct in_addr, which is provided by qemu/sockets.h. Maybe instead of #including qemu/sockets.h before libslirp.h, it is better to make the latter self-contained.

2013-05-16main-loop: narrow win32 pollfds_fill() event bitmasksStefan Hajnoczi
pollfds_fill() and pollfds_poll() translate GPollFD to rfds/wfds/xfds for sockets on win32. select(2) is the underlying system call which is used to monitor sockets for activity. Currently file descriptors that monitor G_IO_ERR will be included in both rfds and wfds. As a result, select(2) will report writability on file descriptors where we only really wanted to monitor readability (with errors). slirp_pollfds_poll() hit this issue: UDP sockets are blocking sockets so we hang in sorecvfrom() when G_IO_ERR is set due to the socket being writable (we only wanted to check for readability). This patch fixes the slirp_pollfds_poll() hang.

2013-04-05main-loop: drop the BQL if the I/O appears to be spinningAnthony Liguori
The char-flow refactoring introduced a busy-wait that depended on an action from the VCPU thread. However, the VCPU thread could never take that action because the busy-wait starved the VCPU thread of the BQL because it never dropped the mutex while running select. Paolo doesn't want to drop this optimization for fear that we will stop detecting these busy waits. I'm afraid to keep this optimization even with the busy-wait fixed because I think a similar problem can occur just with heavy I/O thread load manifesting itself as VCPU pauses. As a compromise, introduce an artificial timeout after a thousand iterations but print a rate limited warning when this happens. This let's us still detect when this condition occurs without it being a fatal error.

2013-02-21slirp: switch to GPollFDStefan Hajnoczi
Slirp uses rfds/wfds/xfds more extensively than other QEMU components. The rarely-used out-of-band TCP data feature is used. That means we need the full table of select(2) to g_poll(3) events: rfds -> G_IO_IN | G_IO_HUP | G_IO_ERR wfds -> G_IO_OUT | G_IO_ERR xfds -> G_IO_PRI I came up with this table by looking at Linux fs/select.c which maps select(2) to poll(2) internally. Another detail to watch out for are the global variables that reference rfds/wfds/xfds during slirp_select_poll(). sofcantrcvmore() and sofcantsendmore() use these globals to clear fd_set bits. When sofcantrcvmore() is called, the wfds bit is cleared so that the write handler will no longer be run for this iteration of the event loop. This actually seems buggy to me since TCP connections can be half-closed and we'd still want to handle data in half-duplex fashion. I think the real intention is to avoid running the read/write handler when the socket has been fully closed. This is indicated with the SS_NOFDREF state bit so we now check for it before invoking the TCP write handler. Note that UDP/ICMP code paths don't care because they are connectionless. Note that slirp/ has a lot of tabs and sometimes mixed tabs with spaces. I followed the style of the surrounding code.

2013-02-21main-loop: switch to g_poll() on POSIX hostsStefan Hajnoczi
Use g_poll(3) instead of select(2). Well, this is kind of a cheat. It's true that we're now using g_poll(3) on POSIX hosts but the *_fill() and *_poll() functions are still using rfds/wfds/xfds. We've set the scene to start converting *_fill() and *_poll() functions step-by-step until no more rfds/wfds/xfds users remain. Then we'll drop the temporary gpollfds_from_select() and gpollfds_to_select() functions and be left with native g_poll(2). On Windows things are a little crazy: convert from rfds/wfds/xfds to GPollFDs, back to rfds/wfds/xfds, call select(2), rfds/wfds/xfds back to GPollFDs, and finally back to rfds/wfds/xfds again. This is only temporary and keeps the Windows build working through the following patches. We'll drop this excessive conversion later and be left with a single GPollFDs -> select(2) -> GPollFDs sequence that allows Windows to use select(2) while the rest of QEMU only knows about GPollFD.

2013-01-09Check return values from g_poll and selectFabien Chouteau
The current implementation of os_host_main_loop_wait() on Windows, returns 1 only when a g_poll() event occurs because the return value of select() is overridden. This is wrong as we may skip a socket event, as shown in this example: 1. select() returns 0 2. g_poll() returns 1 (socket event occurs) 3. os_host_main_loop_wait() returns 1 4. qemu_iohandler_poll() sees no socket event because select() has return before the event occurs 5. select() returns 1 6. g_poll() returns 0 (g_poll overrides select's return value) 7. os_host_main_loop_wait() returns 0 8. qemu_iohandler_poll() doesn't check for socket events because the return value of os_host_main_loop_wait() is zero. 9. goto 5 This patch use one variable for each of these return values, so we don't miss a select() event anymore. Also move the call to select() after g_poll(), this will improve latency as we don't have to go through two os_host_main_loop_wait() calls to detect a socket event.

2012-11-02vl: delay thread initialization after daemonizationPaolo Bonzini
Commit ac4119c (chardev: Use timer instead of bottom-half to postpone open event, 2012-10-12) moved the alarm timer initialization to an earlier point but failed to consider that it depends on qemu_init_main_loop. Later, commit 1c53786 (vl: init main loop earlier, 2012-10-30) fixed this, but left -daemonize in two different ways. First, timers need to be reinitialized after forking. Second, the global mutex was being held by the parent, and thus dropped after forking. The first is now fixed using pthread_atfork. For the second part, make sure that the global mutex is not taken before daemonization, and similarly delay qemu_thread_self.

2012-04-07main-loop: interrupt wait when data arrives on a socketPaolo Bonzini
Right now, the main loop is not interrupted when data arrives on a socket. To fix this, register each socket to interrupt the main loop with WSAEventSelect. This does not replace select, it only communicates a change in socket state that requires a select call. Since the interrupt fires only once per recv call, or only once after a send call returns EWOULDBLOCK we can activate it on all events unconditionally. If QEMU is momentarily uninterested on some condition, the main loop will not busy wait. Instead, it may get one extra wakeup, but then it will ignore the condition until progress occurs and/or qemu_set_fd_handler is called to set a callback. At this point the condition will be tested via select and the callback will be invoked even if it is still disabled on the event.

2012-02-01main-loop: For tools, initialize timers as part of qemu_init_main_loop()Michael Roth
In some cases initializing the alarm timers can lead to non-negligable overhead from programs that link against qemu-tool.o. At least, setting a max-resolution WinMM alarm timer via mm_start_timer() (the current default for Windows) can increase the "tick rate" on Windows OSs and affect frequency scaling, and in the case of tools that run in guest OSs such has qemu-ga, the impact can be fairly dramatic (+20%/20% user/sys time on a core 2 processor was observed from an idle Windows XP guest). This patch doesn't address the issue directly (not sure what a good solution would be for Windows, or what other situations it might be noticeable), but it at least limits the scope of the issue to programs that "opt-in" to using the main-loop.c functions by only enabling alarm timers when qemu_init_main_loop() is called, which is already required to make use of those facilities, so existing users shouldn't be affected.
