[PATCH v4 1/4] event_notifier: add event_notifier_get_wfd()

From: Sergio Lopez
Subject: [PATCH v4 1/4] event_notifier: add event_notifier_get_wfd()
Date: Fri, 4 Mar 2022 11:08:51 +0100

event_notifier_get_fd(const EventNotifier *e) always returns
EventNotifier's read file descriptor (rfd). This is not a problem when
the EventNotifier is backed by a an eventfd, as a single file
descriptor is used both for reading and triggering events (rfd ==

But, when EventNotifier is backed by a pipe pair, we have two file
descriptors, one that can only be used for reads (rfd), and the other
only for writes (wfd).

There's, at least, one known situation in which we need to obtain wfd
instead of rfd, which is when setting up the file that's going to be
sent to the peer in vhost's SET_VRING_CALL.

Add a new event_notifier_get_wfd(const EventNotifier *e) that can be
used to obtain wfd where needed.
