[Qemu-devel] [PATCH 0/2] qmp: add query-cpus-fast

We've recently debugged a huge performance degradation we were getting
on a latency sensitive workload down to the fact that libvirt is
issuing query-cpus. As it turns out, query-cpus always interrupts all
vCPU threads so that they can run ioctl to collect a number of register
information, most of which are not even used by query-cpus at all.

This series adds a new command called query-cpus-fast, which returns
the most relevant information returned by query-cpus without having
to interrupt vCPU threads. This series also updates query-cpus
documentation to advise against its use in production.

More details in individual patches.
