[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/4] qemu-char: ringbuf fixes

From: Markus Armbruster
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/4] qemu-char: ringbuf fixes
Date: Thu, 27 Jun 2013 16:22:06 +0200

The first patch is a straightforward bug fix.

The rest fix code to match documentation.  The patches take pains to
preserve command-line, HMP and QMP bug-compatibility.  I'm not sure
that's actually needed, because:

* All: the documented way to use the driver never worked in any
  released version, and the way that worked was undocumented.

* QMP: I doubt anyone used chardev-add / chardev-remove in anger,
  because serious use surely would've run into the "qemu-char: Fix ID
  reuse after chardev-remove for qapi-based init" bug.

I include the compatibility gunk anyway, so we can have a more
informed discussion.

Markus Armbruster (4):
  qemu-char: Fix ringbuf option size
  Revert "chardev: Make the name of memory device consistent"
  qemu-char: Register ring buffer driver with correct name "ringbuf"
  qapi: Rename ChardevBackend member "memory" to "ringbuf"
