[libvirt] [Patch v5 0/4] Add new feature into live migration



If the memory of guest OS is changed constantly, the live migration
can not be ended ever for ever.

We can use the command 'virsh migrate-setmaxdowntime' to control the
live migration. But the value of maxdowntime is diffcult to calculate
because it depends on the transfer speed of network and constantly 
changing memroy size. We need a easy way to control the live migration.

This patch set add the support of forcing guest to suspend at timeout.
With this patch set, when we migrate the guest OS, we can specify a 
timeout. If the live migration timeouts, auto-suspend the guest OS,
where the migration will complete offline.


Test of this patchset on Linux:
  Env:
    a. The size of guest OS's memory: 1GB
    b. The transfer speed of network: about 100Mb/s
    c. The size of constantly changing memory: more than 900MB

  1. migrate without timeout
  # virsh migrate --live RHEL6RC qemu+ssh://<dest IP>/system tcp://<dest IP>:49152
  The migration does not end after 12 hours.

  2. migrate with timeout(30 minutes):
  # virsh -t migrate --live --timeout 1800 RHEL6RC qemu+ssh://<dest IP>/system tcp:<dest IP>:49152
  
  (Time: 1816768.066 ms)

v5:
- merge daemon/event.* and src/util/event.*
- test event when builing without libvirtd

v4:
- move tools/timer.* into src/util/ directory

v3:
- use the existing virEventXXXTimeout() APT to implement timer
- merge Add, Update, Delete into one single interface virSetTimeout()
- start timer thread when initializing timer

v2:
- implement timer for Windows
- implement dynamic timers

Wen Congyang (4):
  move daemon/event.* into src/util/ directory
  test event when builing without libvirtd
  timer impl
  force guest to suspend at timeout
