[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/4]: QMP capability negotiation support

From: Luiz Capitulino
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2 0/4]: QMP capability negotiation support
Date: Thu, 4 Feb 2010 18:10:03 -0200

 Capability negotiation allows clients to enable new QMP capabilities they
support and thus allows QMP to evolve in a compatible way.

 This series implements Markus's design and is a revamp of the previous
one. It's very simple now, as mode-oriented support has been dropped. I've
maintained the same terminology, though.

 Basically, QMP starts in capability negotiation mode where only the
'qmp_capabilities' command is allowed to run. This command should be used
by clients to enable capabilities they support. When this command is issued
QMP enters in command mode, where the party begins.

 Details in the patches.
