      protocol: double-buffered state for wl_surface · 39624020
      Pekka Paalanen authored
      This change breaks the protocol.
      The current protocol is racy in that updates to surface content and
      surface state (e.g. damage, input and opaque regions) are not guaranteed
      to happen at the same time. Due to protocol buffering and handling
      practices, the issues are very hard to trigger.
      Committing damage to a surface at arbitrary times makes it hard to
      track when the wl_buffer is being read by the server, and when it is
      safe to overwrite (the case of wl_shm with a single buffer reused
      This protocol change introduces the concept of double-buffered state.
      Such state is accumulated and cached in the server, unused, until the
      final commit request. The surface will receive its new content and apply
      its new state atomically.
      A wl_surface.commit request is added to the protocol. This is thought to
      be more clear, than having wl_surface.attach committing implicitly, and
      then having another request to commit without attaching, as would be
      required for a GL app that wants to change e.g. input region without
      When these changes are implemented, clients do not have to worry about
      ordering damage vs. input region vs. attach vs. ... anymore. Clients set
      the state in any order they want, and kick it all in with a commit.
      The interactions between wl_surface.attach, (wl_surface.commit,)
      wl_buffer.release, and wl_buffer.destroy have been undocumented. Only
      careful inspection of the compositor code has told when a wl_buffer is
      free for re-use, especially for wl_shm and wrt. wl_surface.damage.
      Try to clarify how it all should work, and what happens if the wl_buffer
      gets destroyed.
      An additional minor fix: allow NULL argument to
      wl_surface.set_opaque_region. The wording in the documentation already
      implied that a nil region is allowed.

      Fix typecheck in case of multiple instances of type meta data · 4f9cf6ec
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      In most cases the pointer equality test is sufficient.  However, in
      some cases, depending on how things are split across shared objects,
      we can end up with multiple instances of the interface metadata
      constants.  So if the pointers match, the interfaces are equal, if
      they don't match we have to compare the interface names.

      connection: Move object lookup out of wl_connection_demarshal() · 5d2b32b1
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      On the client side where we queue up multiple events before dispatching, we

      calling the handler.  Between queueing up multiple events and eventually

      Split the global registry into its own wl_registry object · 9fe75537
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      The only way to make the global object listener interface thread safe is to
      make it its own interface and make different listeners different wl_proxies.
      The core of the problem is the callback we do when a global show up or
      disappears, which we can't do with a lock held.  On the other hand we can't
      iterate the global list or the listener list without a lock held as new
      globals or listeners may come and go during the iteration.
      Making a copy of the list under the lock and then iterating after dropping
      the lock wont work either.  In case of the listener list, once we drop the
      lock another thread may unregister a listener and destroy the callbackk
      data, which means that when we eventually call that listener we'll pass it
      free memory and break everything.
      We did already solve the thread-safe callback problem, however.  It's what
      we do for all protocol events.  So we can just make the global registry
      functionality its own new interface and give each thread its own proxy.
      That way, the thread will do its own callbacks (with no locks held) and
      destroy the proxy when it's no longer interested in wl_registry events.

      scanner: Generate client stubs for wl_display requests · 8872956d
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      We used to special case this because of the untyped new-id argument in
      the bind request.  Now that the scanner can handle that, we can
      remove the special case.
      Switching to the generated stubs does bring an API change since we now
      also take the interface version that the client expects as an argument.
      Previously we would take this from the interface struct, but the
      application may implement a lower version than what the interface struct
      provides.  To make sure we don't try to dispatch event the client
      doesn't implement handlers for, we have to use a client supplied version

      client: Add wl_event_queue for multi-thread dispatching · 385fe30e
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      This introduces wl_event_queue, which is what will make multi-threaded
      wayland clients possible and useful.  The driving use case is that of a
      GL rendering thread that renders and calls eglSwapBuffer independently of
      a "main thread" that owns the wl_display and handles input events and
      everything else.  In general, the EGL and GL APIs have a threading model
      that requires the wayland client library to be usable from several threads.
      Finally, the current callback model gets into trouble even in a single
      threaded scenario: if we have to block in eglSwapBuffers, we may end up
      doing unrelated callbacks from within EGL.
      The wl_event_queue mechanism lets the application (or middleware such as
      EGL or toolkits) assign a proxy to an event queue.  Only events from objects
      associated with the queue will be put in the queue, and conversely,
      events from objects associated with the queue will not be queue up anywhere
      else.  The wl_display struct has a built-in event queue, which is considered
      the main and default event queue.  New proxies are associated with the
      same queue as the object that created them (either the object that a
      request with a new-id argument was sent to or the object that sent an
      event with a new-id argument).  A proxy can be moved to a different event
      queue by calling wl_proxy_set_queue().
      A subsystem, such as EGL, will then create its own event queue and associate
      the objects it expects to receive events from with that queue.  If EGL
      needs to block and wait for a certain event, it can keep dispatching event
      from its queue until that events comes in.  This wont call out to unrelated
      code with an EGL lock held.  Similarly, we don't risk the main thread
      handling an event from an EGL object and then calling into EGL from a
      different thread without the lock held.

      Change filedescriptor API to be thread safe · 53d24713
      Kristian Høgsberg authored
      The update callback for the file descriptors was always a bit awkward and
      un-intuitive.  The idea was that whenever the protocol code needed to
      write data to the fd it would call the 'update' function.  This function
      would adjust the mainloop so that it polls for POLLOUT on the fd so we
      can eventually flush the data to the socket.
      The problem is that in multi-threaded applications, any thread can issue
      a request, which writes data to the output buffer and thus triggers the
      update callback.  Thus, we'll be calling out with the display mutex
      held and may call from any thread.
      The solution is to eliminate the udpate callback and just require that
      the application or server flushes all connection buffers before blocking.
      This turns out to be a simpler API, although we now require clients to
      deal with EAGAIN and non-blocking writes.  It also saves a few syscalls,
      since the socket will be writable most of the time and most writes will
      complete, so we avoid changing epoll to poll for POLLOUT, then write and
      then change it back for each write.

      man: add man-page infrastructure · 49dee9a8
      David Herrmann authored
      This adds a man-page infrastructure based on Docbook XML files. This
      allows us to integrate the man-pages into the publican books later. An
      example page for wl_display_connect() (with an alias
      wl_display_connect_to_fd()) is also added.
      Feel free to add more man-pages. Function calls are put in man3 and
      overview pages into man7. All pages (including aliases) have to be added
      to the Makefile.
      Docbook does generate aliases automatically from the additional names that
      were put in the XML file. However, a small SED script is needed to fixup
      the include-paths in the generated troff files. If someone knows how to
      avoid that (or even install them gzip'ped), please fix it up.

      event-loop: export wl_event_loop_dispatch_idle() · 003a946a
      David Herrmann authored
      When integrating the wayland event-loop into another event-loop, we
      currently have no chance of checking whether there are pending idle
      sources that have to be called. This patch exports the
      "dispatch_idle_sources()" call so other event loops can call this before
      going to sleep. This is what wl_event_loop_dispatch() currently does so we
      simply allow external event-loops to do the same now.
      To avoid breaking existing applications, we keep the call to
      dispatch_idle_sources() in wl_event_loop_dispatch() for now. However, if
      we want we can remove this later and require every application to call
      this manually. This needs to be discussed, but the overhead is negligible
      so we will probably leave it as it is.
      This finally allows to fully integrate the wayland-server API into
      existing event-loops without any nasty workarounds.

      wayland-server: return new ID in wl_client_add_resource() · 9fe135c4
      David Herrmann authored
      wl_client_add_resource() used to return no error even though the new
      resource wasn't added to the client. This currently makes it very easy to
      DOS weston by simply posting thousands of "create_surface" requests with
      an invalid ID. Weston simply assumes the wl_client_add_resource() request
      succeeds but will never destroy the surface again as the "destroy" signal
      is never called (because the surface isn't linked into the wl_map).
      This change makes wl_client_add_resource() return the new ID of the added
      object and 0 on failure. Servers (like weston) can now correctly
      immediately destroy the surface when this call fails instead of leaving
      the surface around and producing memory-leaks.
      Instead of returning -1 on failure and 0 on success, I made it return the
      new ID as this seems more appropriate. We can directly use it when calling
      it with new_id==0.
