Anthony Liguori - July 27, 2011, 12:06 a.m.
This allows GSources to be used to register callback events in QEMU.  This is
useful as it allows us to take greater advantage of glib and also because it
allows us to write code that is more easily testable outside of QEMU since we
can make use of glib's main loop in unit tests.

All new code should use glib's callback mechanisms for registering fd events
which are very well documented at:

http://developer.gnome.org/glib/stable/glib-The-Main-Event-Loop.html

And:

The use of g_assert() means that production code should define
G_DISABLE_ASSERT in addition to NDEBUG. Should we make both default
for stable versions?

The above functions do not seem to be referenced anywhere.

Oh, this is just me being lazy.  There's a way to do this without using 
the assert.  I put the assert there to make sure that I didn't leave a 
latent bug.

But in general, I don't think we should ever define NDEBUG.

Why? I think it's normal practice to define NDEBUG (and
G_DISABLE_ASSERT if g_assert() is used) for production builds.

NDEBUG is normally set automatically for production code,
and it disables assertions which is not always good.

Assertions are useful even in production code unless
you are sure that the code is bug free or the assertions
cost to much resources - either memory or execution time.

I don't think this is the case for QEMU, therefore I'd prefer
having assertions in production code, too. This simply
means undefining NDEBUG before including assert.h.

Heh, I guess this is a stylistic thing.

The theory is that if you do all of your testing with !defined(NDEBUG), 
then you wouldn't want to ship something that potentially introduces 
different code paths to the end user.

Besides, if an assert would trigger, I'd rather it drop core and have a 
predictable error verses an unpredictable behavior.

I don't know what constitutes "production builds" but the software that 
most people use in production (normal distributions packages) don't 
define NDEBUG.
