[libvirt] [PATCH RFC 00/22] Move process code to qemu_process

Make process code usable outside qemu_capabilities by moving code
from qemu_capabilities to qemu_process and exposing public functions.

The process code is used to activate a non domain QEMU process for QMP
message exchanges.

This patch set modifies capabilities to use the new public functions.


The process code is being decoupled from qemu_capabilities now to
support hypervisor baseline and comparison using QMP commands.

This patch set was originally submitted as part of the baseline patch set:
  [libvirt] [PATCH v4 00/37] BaselineHypervisorCPU using QEMU QMP exchanges

The baseline and comparison requirements are described here:

I am extracting and resubmitting just the process changes as a stand
alone series to try to make review easier.

The patch set shows capabilities using the public functions.
To see baseline using the public functions...
Look at the "qemu_driver:" patches at the end of

The "qemu_driver: Support feature expansion via QEMU when baselining cpu"
patch might be of particular interest because the same QEMU process is
used for both baseline and expansion using QMP commands.


Many patches were used to isolate code moves and name changes from other
actual implementation changes.

The patches reuse the pattern of public qemuProcess{Start,Stop} functions
and internal static qemuProcess{Init,Launch,ConnectMonitor} functions
but adds a "Qmp" suffix to make them unique.

A number of patches are about re-partitioning the code into static
functions for initialization, process launch and connection monitor
stuff.  This matches the established pattern in qemu_process and seemed
to make sense to do.

For concurrency...
A thread safe library function creates a unique directory under libDir for each QEMU
process (for QMP messaging) to decouple processes in terms of sockets and
file system footprint.

Every patch should compile independently if applied in sequence.
