While looking at Mao's series
(https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2018-10/msg02519.html) I
wondered if devices having link properties can be user-creatable.

Using the following patch (I don't think this is correct to put qdev
code into qobject, but I used this as PoC):

-- >8 --
     prop->child = child;
---

I get:

$ aarch64-softmmu/qemu-system-aarch64 -M virt
qemu-system-aarch64: warning: Device type 'bus' is user_creatable

Are we incorrectly using user_creatable = true in those devices/
Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Phil.

Is your warning printing the wrong thing? "bus", "irq",
etc don't seem like names of devices...

I think whether a device with a link property is
user creatable might depend on what the property is
for and whether the device has a useful fallback for
"link not connected".

thanks

Oh indeed I inverted (type, name) :)

OK it now makes sens, reading this example:

    static void bcm2836_realize(DeviceState *dev, Error **errp)
    {
        Object *obj;
        Error *err = NULL;

        obj = object_property_get_link(OBJECT(dev), "ram", &err);
        if (obj == NULL) {
            error_setg(errp, "%s: required ram link not found: %s",
                       __func__, error_get_pretty(err));
            return;
        }
        ...

Thanks!

Phil.

Yes, but also what we want to know is the type name of
the object obj we're adding the link property to (that
is the object which is marked user-creatable). The
"type" variable here is the type of the thing being linked.
So I think printing object_get_typename(obj) would be helpful.

thanks
