Perhaps it'd be better to make it common object and put it into root 
directory, like its done for bitops.c and bitmap.c

I think its too harsh to abort here (and in pop() too), fifo 
overrun/underrun condition is absolutely normal for most of the devices, 
usually it would just trigger an  interrupt. I suggest return a error 
code instead and let a caller decide what should happen in this situation.

I'm not asking for actual conversions, but it would be nice to see a
list of some devices that could in principle be moved to using this FIFO,
as an indication of its general utility.

Would it make sense for the FIFO to be a QOM object, or is that a
silly idea?

how about implementing this as a wrapper to VMSTATE_STRUCT_TEST() macro 
instead? And maybe this should go to vmstate.h header

FIFO introspection capability could be useful I think, and we could 
implement device-specific fifo "mutants" then (for example, PL330 fifo 
could be a general FIFO object + "tag" variable).

The two device models in this series. mcf_uart.c, strongarm.c
(StrongARMUARTState), xilinx_uartlite, cadence_uart.c, sh_serial.c,
tsc210x.c to name the ones Ive just had a brief look over. There are
more. grep -i fifo hw | grep uint8_t gives you a short list of files
to look for potential clients.

Dominated by uarts as they are the ones that need 8-bit fifos.
Usability is greatly expanded if the fifo can be an arbitrary data
type (uint32_t, uint16_t, struct foo), but that is a much harder
problem to solve that id like to say is out of scope of this series. I
think this is what Igor is getting at RE his PL330 comments on his
continuation of this thread. Can we get the ball rolling with uint8_t
then talk about generalisation strategy?

> silly idea?

There could be merit in making the data entries some form of QOM
object. It would hurt performance, but could solve the arbitrary data
problem.

This has no existing precedent in QEMU so I am unsure of what you mean?

And maybe this should go to vmstate.h header

I disagree. All other clients of VMS_STRUCT are out in their repective
device specific headers (pci.h, i2c.h) etc. Unless this is new
established policy, I dont really want to change the current adopted
approach.

I meant VMSTATE_TIMER_TEST() in vmstate.h as an example, which is a 
wrapper to VMSTATE_POINTER_TEST(). With this approach, fifo macro could be

#define VMSTATE_FIFO8(_field, _state) \
VMSTATE_STRUCT(_field, _state, 0, vmstate_fifo8, Fifo8)

Yeh just greppin around it looks like this is functionally equivalent.
VMSTATE_IDE_BUS looks like a reasonable precedent for that. Any
opinions one way or the other RE with my original approach (based on
I2C) vs Igors shortened version?
