[PULL 2/2] qom: use correct field name when getting/setting alias proper


From: Paolo Bonzini
Subject: [PULL 2/2] qom: use correct field name when getting/setting alias properties
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2021 12:01:37 +0200

Alias targets have a different name than the alias property itself
(e.g. a machine's pflash0 might be an alias of a property named 'drive').
When the target's getter or setter invokes the visitor, it will use
a different name than what the caller expects, and the visitor will
not be able to find it (or will consume erroneously).

The solution is for alias getters and setters to wrap the incoming
visitor, and forward the sole field that the target is expecting while
renaming it appropriately.

This bug has been there forever, but it was exposed after -M parsing
switched from QemuOptions and StringInputVisitor to keyval and
QObjectInputVisitor.  Before, the visitor ignored the name. Now, it
checks "drive" against what was passed on the command line and finds
that no such property exists.
