      checkpoint: allow overlapping checkpoints · 5c283356
      Thomas Haller authored
      that allows the creation of overlapping checkpoints. Before, and
      by default, checkpoints that reference a same device conflict,
      and creating such a checkpoint failed.
      Now, allow this. But during rollback automatically destroy all
      overlapping checkpoints that were created after the checkpoint
      that is about to rollback.
      With this, you can create a series of checkpoints, and rollback them
      individually. With the restriction, that if you once rolled back to an
      older checkpoint, you no longer can roll"forward" to a younger one.
      What this implies and what is new here, is that the checkpoint might be
      automatically destroyed by NetworkManager before the timeout expires. When
      the user later would try to manually destroy/rollback such a checkpoint, it
      would fail because the checkpoint no longer exists.

      checkpoint: don't let nm_checkpoint_new() fail · e5fc9a30
      Thomas Haller authored
      We already do error checking in nm_checkpoint_manager_create(). No need
      to split it in two places. Let all error conditions be handled by
      nm_checkpoint_manager_create() first, and then once we decide all is
      good, nm_checkpoint_new() can no longer fail.

      checkpoint: let each checkpoint schedule its own timeout · 5fb65b7f
      Thomas Haller authored
      Instead of scheduling one timeout only, let each checkpoint instance
      individually schedule a timeout. This has some overhead, but glib
      is supposed to make scheduling many timers efficient. Otherwise,
      glib should be fixed.
      This simplifies in my opinion the code, because it's up to each
      checkpoint to maintain its own timeout.
      Later we will also add a AdjustRollbackTimeout operation, which
      allow to reschedule the timeout. It also seems slightly simpler,
      if scheduling of the timeout is done by the NMCheckpoint instance

      checkpoint: refactor nm_checkpoint_manager_create() to simplify creating device list · 63e3bff9
      Thomas Haller authored
      If no device paths are given, we can take the devices directly.
      We don't need to first create a list of paths, and then
      look them up by path again to add them to the list.

      checkpoint/trivial: rename nm_checkpoint_manager_unref() to nm_checkpoint_manager_free() · 45c24fb9
      Thomas Haller authored
      NMCheckpointManager was added and is not ref-countable, because it
      is not needed.
      I still often like for such objects (that are not ref-countable),
      that their destroy function is called "unref". Both for consistency,
      and also if we would later add ref-counting to the object.
      However, NMCheckpointManager keeps a pointer to NMManager. So, when
      NMManager gets destroyed, it *MUST* destroy the NMCheckpointManager.
      It cannot accept that the checkpoint manager outlives NMManager,
      but the "unref" name suggests that somebody else might have still
      a reference to this object keeping it alive. That is not the case.
      Rename so that this is clear.
      I would name it nm_checkpoint_manager_destroy(), but "destroy" already
      has a meaning for NMCheckpoint instances, so use "free".

      checkpoint: embed CList in NMCheckpoint instance · ffb49267
      Thomas Haller authored
      We don't need an external CheckpointItem, just to wrap the
      CList instance. Embed it directly in NMCheckpoint.
      Sure, that exposes the checkpoints_lst field in the (internal)
      header file, hiding the private member less.

      That is, because NetworkManager now first emits signals that the checkpoint
      object was created, before answering the D-Bus request. That makes more
      sense, but leads to this crash.
      The ugliness of how libnm handles object visibility is considerable.
      libnm hides objects until they are fully initialized. So, when
      the async create-checkpoint operation returns, the object might not
      yet be ready to be exposed. We need to delay the result. It would be
      better if the API would simply return the created path.

      I find it slightly nicer and explict. Also, the list elements
      are strictly speaking private, we should better not explicitly
      use them outside of NMManager/NMDevice. The macro hides this.

      They were not (notably) touched in more than 3 years.
      I doubt anybody is using them.
      Also, nowadays we have contrib/rpm to build NetworkManager
      packages for Fedora/RPM. We have copr, we have automated CI
      in CentOS CI and beaker.
      Also, nowadays it should be easy to spawn a a fedora image
      in a container or tools like vagrant.
      I think there are better alternatives. Drop the scripts.

      shared/nm-glib: add compat implementation for g_autofree · b2edcdc9

      libnm: add nm-autoptr.h header · ff8e5633
      Thomas Haller authored
      "nm-autoptr.h" is done in a way that allows you to copy the header
      in your source tree to support older versions of libnm, that didn't
      contain the header yet. For example, we might want to use it in
      network-manager-applet, but we don't want to bump the libnm dependency
      to 1.11.2+ only to get this functionality.
      Note that G_DEFINE_AUTOPTR_CLEANUP_FUNC() was added in glib 2.43.4,
      and requires compiler support for the cleanup attribute. The compiler
      support is taken as given, because we rely on it already. However,
      NetworkManager and network-manager-applet still don't depend on a glib
      version recent enough to provide these macros. To actually use them
      (*inside*) NetworkManager/network-manager-applet, we either would have
      to bump the glib minimal dependency, or reimplement g_autoptr in
      /shared/nm-utils/nm-glib.h compat header.

      wifi: rework tracking of wifi-aps to use CList · d7b1a911
      Thomas Haller authored
      - no longer track APs in a hash table with their exported path
        as key. The exported path is already tracked by NMDBusManager's
        lookup index, so we can reuse that for fast lookup by path. Otherwise,
        track the APs in a CList per device.
      - as we now track APs in a CList, their order is well defined.
        We no longer need to sort APs and obsoletes nm_wifi_aps_get_sorted()
        and simplifies nm_wifi_aps_find_first_compatible().

      core: track devices in manager via embedded CList · 4a705e1a
      Thomas Haller authored
      Instead of using a GSList for tracking the devices, use a CList.
      I think a CList is in most cases the more suitable data structure
      then GSList:
       - you can find out in O(1) whether the object is linked. That
         is nice, for example to assert in NMDevice's destructor that
         the object was unlinked, and we will use that later in
       - you can unlink the element in O(1) and you can unlink the
         element without having access to the link's head
       - Contrary to GSList, this does not require an extra slice
         allocation for the link node. It quite possibliy consumes
         slightly less memory because the CList structure is embedded
         in a struct that we already allocate. Even if slice allocation
         would be perfect to only consume 2*sizeof(gpointer) for the link
         note, it would at most be as-good as CList. Quite possibly,
         there is an overhead though.
       - CList possibly has better memory locality, because the link
         structure and the data are close to each other.
      Something which could be seen as disavantage, is that with CList
      one device can only be tracked in one NMManager instance at a time.
      But that is fine. There exists only one NMManager instance for now,
      and even if we would ever introduce multiple managers, we probably
      would not associate one NMDevice instance with multiple managers.
      The advantages are arguably not huge, but CList is IMHO clearly the
      more suited data structure. No need to stick to a suboptimal data
      structure for the job. Refactor it.
