[Qemu-block] [PATCH 2/2] qapi: Allow blockdev-add for NBD

From: Max Reitz
Subject: [Qemu-block] [PATCH 2/2] qapi: Allow blockdev-add for NBD
Date: Wed, 3 Feb 2016 17:33:16 +0100

We have to introduce a new object (BlockdevOptionsNbd) for several
- Neither of InetSocketAddress nor UnixSocketAddress alone is
  sufficient, because both are supported
- We cannot use SocketAddress because NBD does not support an fd,
  and because it is not a flat union which BlockdevOptionsNbd is
- We cannot use a flat union of InetSocketAddress and
  UnixSocketAddress because we would need some kind of discriminator
  which we do not have; we could inline the UnixSocketAddress as a
  string and then make it an 'alternate' type instead of a union, but
  this will not work either, because:
- InetSocketAddress itself is not suitable for NBD because the port is
  not optional (which it is for NBD) and because it offers more options
  (like choosing between ipv4 and ipv6) which NBD does not support.
