Re: [libvirt] Core dump caused by misusing openssl in multithread scenario!

Hi Daniel,
   My comments are as following:
1. Currently curl_easy_init method is called from esxVI_CURL_Connect method in esx_vi.c. And curl_global_init method is called by curl_easy_init. If we move
Curl_global_init to virInitialize, shall we still need to call curl_easy_init from esxVI_CURL_Connect? Did the latest version fix this problem?
2. If we need to use openssl in multi-threads, we must register the two callbacks. Currently libcurl didn't do it. If we will not register these two callbacks in libvirt,
How to do?

Benjamin Wang

No code in libvirt should assume curl uses openssl - it may well have been compiled with gnutls, or nss instead. The actual flaw here is that libvirt does not invoke 'curl_global_init' from virInitialize.
