Re: [libvirt] An implementation bug in qemuMigrationWaitForCompletion that introduces an unnecessary sleep of 50 ms when a migration completes



I was thinking since a migration won't finish in 50 ms, we are going to do at least one sleep anyway. So, I just moved the sleep around. 

I agree that the ideal approach is to wait for migration completion event notification from Qemu, rather than polling every 50 ms.

Or change to loop to while (1) and add a break before the sleep if
jobInfo->type is not VIR_DOMAIN_JOB_UNBOUNDED.

Personally, I don't mind either way. The ultimate solution is to avoid
any sleeps by waiting for an event. However, Juan did not implement the
even in QEMU yet. Once he does that, I will make patches for libvirt
that will use that instead of polling every 50ms.
