Commit Message

Yordan Karadzhov (VMware) Nov. 20, 2020, 9:42 a.m. UTC
This patch can be treated as an almost complete rewrite of the way
the C API of KernelShark deals with plugins. First of all, the two
pluggable user actions (one executed during data loading and another
executed during plotting) have separate handlers. This way the user
can register only one of the two callback functions, if this is what
is needed.

The second substantial change is that instead of having a single
interface for loading the plugin, we now have 3 different interfaces.
The one that exists in version 1 of KernelShark is now renamed to
Data Processing Interface (dpi).

The first new interface for loading can be used to register user
provided implementation of the Data stream readout and is called Data
Readout Interface (dri). Via this  plugin loading interface the user
can open trace data having an arbitrary format. In order to make this
possible the user has to provide a plugin that contains an implementation
of the data readout methods defined by the kshark_data_stream_interface
and to register all those methods.

The second new plugin loading interface is called Control interface
and can be used to provide the plugin with an access to the GUI's Main
window object. Via this interface the plugin can became capable to
modify the GUI. Such a modification for example can be to add new
dialog to the menus or to change the state of the GUI (to select entry
1with the marker, to zoom, ...).
