Subject[RFC v16][PATCH 27/43] c/r: support for open pipes
Date
A pipe is a double-headed inode with a buffer attached to it. We
checkpoint the pipe buffer only once, as soon as we hit one side of
the pipe, regardless whether it is read- or write- end.

To checkpoint a file descriptor that refers to a pipe (either end), we
first lookup the inode in the hash table: If not found, it is the
first encounter of this pipe. Besides the file descriptor, we also (a)
save the pipe data, and (b) register the pipe inode in the hash. If
found, it is the second encounter of this pipe, namely, as we hit the
other end of the same pipe. In both cases we write the pipe-objref of
the inode.

To restore, create a new pipe and thus have two file pointers (read-
and write- ends). We only use one of them, depending on which side was
checkpointed first. We register the file pointer of the other end in
the hash table, with the pipe_objref given for this pipe from the
checkpoint, to be used later when the other arrives. At this point we
also restore the contents of the pipe buffers.

To save the pipe buffer, given a source pipe, use do_tee() to clone
its contents into a temporary 'struct pipe_inode_info', and then use
do_splice_from() to transfer it directly to the checkpoint image file.

To restore the pipe buffer, with a fresh newly allocated target pipe,
use do_splice_to() to splice the data directly between the checkpoint
image file and the pipe.
