parentmonitor: Introduce ReadLineState (Jan Kiszka) (diff)
monitor: Decouple terminals (Jan Kiszka)
Currently all registered (and activate) monitor terminals work in broadcast mode: Everyone sees what someone else types on some other terminal and what the monitor reports back. This model is broken when you have a management monitor terminal that is automatically operated and some other terminal used for independent guest inspection. Such additional terminals can be multiplexed device channels or a gdb frontend connected to QEMU's stub. Therefore, this patch decouples the buffers and states of all monitor terminals, allowing the user to operate them independently. It finally starts to use the 'mon' parameter that was introduced earlier with the API rework. It also defines the default monitor: the first instantance that has the MONITOR_IS_DEFAULT flag set, and that is the monitor created via the "-monitor" command line switch (or "vc" if none is given). As the patch requires to rework the monitor suspension interface, it also takes the freedom to make it "truely" suspending (so far suspending meant suppressing the prompt, but inputs were still processed).
