[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] chardev: Avoid adding duplicate chardev

From: Pankaj Gupta
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] chardev: Avoid adding duplicate chardev
Date: Tue, 29 Jan 2019 11:58:01 +0530

Hotplugging existing char chardev with qmp, dereferences(removes) 
existing chardev. This patch avoids adding a chardev if a chardev 
with same id exists.

RH BZ 1660831: 

# (host) ls -lt /tmp/helloworld*
srwxr-xr-x.  /tmp/helloworld1
srwxr-xr-x.  /tmp/helloworld2

Before this patch:

hotplug existed chardev(channel1) in qmp:
"data":{"addr":{"type":"unix", "data": {"path": "/tmp/helloworld1"}}}}}}

{"error": {"class": "GenericError", "desc": "attempt to add duplicate 
property 'charchannel1' to object (type 'container')"}}

# ls -lt /tmp/helloworld*
srwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 0 Dec 19 16:39 /tmp/helloworld2

After this patch:

"data":{"addr":{"type":"unix", "data": {"path": "/tmp/helloworld1"}}}}}}
{"error": {"class": "GenericError", "desc": "Chardev 'charchannel1' already 

# ls -lt /tmp/helloworld*
srwxr-xr-x. 1 /tmp/helloworld1
srwxr-xr-x. 1 /tmp/helloworld2
