Re: [libvirt] PATCH: 6/25: Avoid event loop wakups in remote driver



When going into the call() method, we temporarily disable the
event wakup callback. The call() method is already processing
any async messages which arrive, so letting the main event loop
wakup here is inefficient, and indeed will block the main event
loop on the mutex while the main thread is in call(). We really
don't want that !
