[Qemu-devel] patch: add delay=<msecs> suboption to -display curses

The attached patch (qemu-curses-delay-1.patch) allows the user to specify that 
he needs -display curses to insert a delay in between key events. The current 
behaviour is that it inserts key events immediately, one right after another, 
which has proven to be too fast for some applications. Please let me know if 
there are any improvements you'd like me to make to this patch, with the goal 
that I'm hoping you'll accept it. A more detailed description of this patch is 
as follows:

Add support for the "-display curses" option to accept suboptions (-display 
curses[,option...), and add the "delay=<msecs>" suboption. This suboption 
causes a millisecond-based delay to be inserted in between key events so that 
they won't be inserted immediately one after another. The delay is performed 
using a qemu virtual clock timer. If the "delay" option isn't specified, or if 
"delay=0" is specified, then the timer isn't used, thus making the default be 
the original behaviour. The "=<msecs>" operand is optional - if it isn't 
specified then 20 is assumed.
