Hi Rich, your watchdog qemu patch is working fine for me (i6300esb,
default reset behavior), but I was wondering... how should libvirt find
out about the watchdog firing?
This falls into the general problem space of how does QEMU notify its
management app of interesting events. We already really want the
ability to be notify of ENOSPC errors in disks, and also would like
to know if the VM is paused for any reason outside our control.
There have been proposals to just print an async message to the
monitor upon events, that mgmt app could then parse. This is a little
fragile though, so for a long term solutiuon we really need the generic
libqemumonitor.so type API with formal async notification support.
