[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/11] qapi: add support for lists of native type

From: Michael Roth
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 00/11] qapi: add support for lists of native types
Date: Fri, 10 May 2013 17:45:59 -0500

These patches apply on top of qemu.git master, and can also be obtained from:
git://github.com/mdroth/qemu.git qapi-native-lists

Sending this now since a number of series have popped up in the past that
wanted this, and Amos has some pending patches (query-mac-tables) that rely
on this as well.

These patches add support for specifying lists of native qapi types
(int/bool/str/number/int8/uint8/etc) like so:

  { 'type': 'foo',
    'data': { 'bar': ['int'] }}

for a 'bar' field that is a list of type 'int',

  { 'type': 'foo2',
    'data': { 'bar2': ['str'] }}

for a 'bar2' field that is a list of type 'str', and so on.

This uses linked list types for the native C representations, just as we do
for complex schema-defined types. In the future we may add schema annotations
of some sort to specify a more natural/efficient array type for the C
representations, but this should serve the majority of uses-cases for now.

 * added native list support for fixed-width integer types (Amos)
 * added fixed-width integer list coverage to serialization,
   QMPOutputVisitor, and QmpInputVisitor unit tests
 * added unit test to QmpInputVisitor to test new overflow handling when
   integers types are expected (Eric)
 * clarified terminology/documentation in json parser fix (Laszlo)
 * fixed whitespace/newlines in code generator output (Luiz)

 * fixed do-nothing float tests in pre-existing code and updated new
   unit tests accordingly (Laszlo)
 * added a fix for a bug in json parser that was exposed by above change
 * fixed misuse of string format parameters for float testing (Laszlo)
 * fixed extra characters in comment (Laszlo)
 * removed unused variant from UserDefNativeListUnion QAPI type
