[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/6] qdev patches: properties, id=<tag>, more device

From: Gerd Hoffmann
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/6] qdev patches: properties, id=<tag>, more device info
Date: Wed, 15 Jul 2009 13:43:30 +0200


qdev properties patch series again, rebased and updated according to
Pauls review comments.  Replaces the qdev patches in anthonys queue.

What is in there?

First the qdev property rework.  Quite big one, but as it puts the way
properties work upside down it can hardly be split into smaller pieces.
Since I posted it last time it got a bit larger due to some sparc
devices being converted to qdev by BlueSwirl.  The qdev_prop_set_*
functions got typechecking support.  They will also abort on failure.

The other patches are building on top of the properties.  They are a
bunch of little, self-contained and friendly patches.  They bring:

 * Support for attaching user-specified ids to devices (not fixed length
   any more).
 * Add more info to DeviceInfo (alias, description).

The -device switch support has been removed due to concepts still being
debated.  These patches will be posted as separate patch series.  So
this patch series should be finally ready for merge.
