[PATCH v5] display/gtk: get proper refreshrate

From: pavlica . nikola
Subject: [PATCH v5] display/gtk: get proper refreshrate
Date: Wed, 8 Jan 2020 13:13:42 +0100

From: Nikola Pavlica <address@hidden>

Because some VMs in QEMU can get GPU virtualization (using technologies
such as iGVT-g, as mentioned previously), they could produce a video
output that had a higher display refresh rate than of what the GTK
display was displaying. (fxp. Playing a video game inside of a Windows
VM at 60 Hz, while the output stood locked at 33 Hz because of defaults
set in include/ui/console.h)

Since QEMU does indeed have internal systems for determining frame
times as defined in ui/console.c.
The code checks for a variable called update_interval that it later
uses for time calculation. This variable, however, isn't defined
anywhere in ui/gtk.c and instead ui/console.c just sets it to

update_interval represents the number of milliseconds per display
refresh, and by doing some math we get that 1000/30 = 33.33... Hz

This creates the mentioned problem and what this patch does is that it
checks for the display refresh rate reported by GTK itself (we can take
this as a safe value) and just converts it back to a number of
milliseconds per display refresh.
