Re: [libvirt] [PATCH 1/2] snapshot: add support for qemu transaction command

QEmu 1.1 is adding a 'transaction' command to the JSON monitor.
Each element of a transaction corresponds to a top-level command,
with the additional guarantee that the transaction flushes all
pending I/O, then guarantees that all actions will be successful
as a group or that failure will roll back the state to what it
was before the monitor command.  The difference between a
top-level command:

{ "execute": "blockdev-snapshot-sync", "arguments":
   { "device": "virtio0", ... } }

and a transaction:

{ "execute": "transaction", "arguments":
   { "actions": [
     { "type" "blockdev-snapshot-sync", "data":

Shouldn't there be a colon between "type" and "block...."?

       { "device": "virtio0", ... } } ] } }

is just a couple of changed key names and nesting the shorter
command inside a JSON array to the longer command.  This patch
just adds the framework; the next patch will actually use a

Hopefuly QEmu won't add another wrapping type.
