[Qemu-devel] [PATCH V4 2/9] snapshot: add paired functions for internal

From: Wenchao Xia
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH V4 2/9] snapshot: add paired functions for internal snapshot id and name
Date: Mon, 8 Jul 2013 16:00:44 +0800

Internal snapshot's ID and name concept are both visible in general
block level, they are observed by user in "info snapshots", so it is
possible to have conflict. Although we can separate the two concept in
programming, but if they can be distinguished in string itself, things
will be simple and clear, so introduce two functions to do it.

The implemention, qcow2 snapshot calls snapshot_id_string_generate() to
make sure it follows the rule in driver. If caller or user give a check
with snapshot_name_wellformed() before create snapshot, then the ID
and name will never conflict. The check can be also taken in
qcow2_snapshot_create(), but require it to return error reason.

For rbd, it have no ID, so have no impact.
For sheepdog, ID can't be determined in qemu, so still can't guarantee
that no more conflict for ID and name.
