[PATCH v2 00/31] qapi/qom: QAPIfy --object and object-add

From: Kevin Wolf
Subject: [PATCH v2 00/31] qapi/qom: QAPIfy --object and object-add
Date: Wed, 24 Feb 2021 14:52:24 +0100

This series adds a QAPI type for the properties of all user creatable
QOM types and finally makes the --object command line option (in all
binaries) and the object-add monitor commands (in QMP and HMP) use the
new ObjectOptions union.

This change improves things in more than just one way:

1. Documentation for QOM object types has always been lacking. Adding
   the schema, we get documentation for every property.

2. It prevents bugs by performing parts of the input validation (e.g.
   checking presence of mandatory properties) already in QAPI instead of
   relying on separate manual implementations in each class.

3. It provides QAPI introspection for user creatable objects.

4. Non-scalar properties are now supported everywhere because the
   command line parsers (including HMP) use the keyval parser now.

If you are in the CC list and didn't expect this series, it's probably
because you're the maintainer of one of the objects for which I'm adding
a QAPI schema description. Please just have a look at the specific patch
for your object and check whether the schema and its documentation make
sense to you. You can ignore all other patches.

In a next step after this series, we can add make use of the QAPI
structs in the implementation of the object and separate their
configuration from the runtime state. Specifically, the plan is to
add a .configure() callback to ObjectClass that allows configuring the
object in one place at creation time and keeping QOM property setters
only for properties that can actually be changed at runtime. Paolo made
an example of what the state could look like after this:


Finally, the intention is to extend the QAPI schema to have separate
'object' entities and generate some of the code that was written
manually in the intermediate state before.

This series is available as a git tag at:

    https://repo.or.cz/qemu/kevin.git qapi-object-v2

- Convert not only object-add, but all external interfaces so that the
  schema will always be enforced and mismatch between implementation and
  schema can't go unnoticed.
- Rebased, covering properties and object types added since v1 (yes,
  things do become outdated rather quickly when you touch all user
  creatable objects)
- Changed the "Since:" version number in the schema documentation to
  refer to the version when the object was introduced rather than 6.0
  where the schema will (hopefully) be added
- Probably some other minor changes
