[libvirt] Re: [PATCH 2/6] Introduce monitor 'wait' command (v2)

The wait command will pause the monitor the command was issued in until a new

The wait command completes after a single event is available.

Today, we queue events indefinitely but in the future, I suspect we'll drop
events that are older than a certain amount of time to avoid infinitely
allocating memory for long running VMs.

To make use of the new notification mechanism, this patch introduces a
qemu_notify_event() API.  This API takes three parameters: a class which is
meant to classify the type of event being generated, a name which is meant to
distinguish which event in the class that has been generated, and a details
parameters which is meant to allow events to send arbitrary data with a given
event.

v1->v2
 - Added a -d flag to poll for events instead of waiting
 - Made old events expire after 10 minutes

Shame on me. I meant to rename wait/poll to wait_event/poll_event. It'll be in v3.
