[libvirt] Deadlock when using custom handlers



Hi,
virt-viewer is using it's own virEventRegisterImpl. With current libvirt
this can deadlock when connection to nonexistant URIs like

    qemu+ssh:///unknownhost.example.com/system

like:

23:47:00.338: 1526: debug : doRemoteOpen:503 : proceeding with name = qemu:///system

Gdb displays the deadlock nicely:

#16 0x0804f54d in main (argc=1, argv=0xbfc3b3f4) at virt-viewer-main.c:120

which is the sock->lock:

    virNetSocketRemoveIOCallback holds sock->lock
	-> virEventRemoveHandle
	    -> impl_remove_handle
		-> opaque->ff
		    -> virNetSocketEventFree want to hold sock->lock

Working around this by removing the locks from
virNetSocketRemoveIOCallback leads to another deadlock:

#1  0xb69faf02 in __lll_lock_wait () at ../nptl/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/i386/i686/../i486/lowlevellock.S:142

#19 0x0804f54d in main (argc=1, argv=0xbfbf1a14) at virt-viewer-main.c:120

which is the virNetClient lock:

   virNetClientClose holds client->lock
    -> virNetSocketRemoveIOCallback 
        -> virEventRemoveHandle
            -> impl_remove_handle 
                -> virNetSocketEventFree
                    -> virNetClientEventFree wants the lock

I didn't see a simple way to fix this but would welcome any suggestions.
Cheers,
