We have long had a problem with use of netcat for ssh tunnelling because
there's no guarantee the UNIX socket path the client builds will match
the UNIX socket path the remote host uses. We don't even allow session
mode SSH tunnelling for this reason. We also can't easily auto-spawn
libvirtd in session mode.
With the introduction of modular daemons we also have potential for two
completely different UNIX socket paths even for system mode, and the
client can't know which to use.
The solution to all these problems is to introduce a custom netcat impl.
Instead passing the UNIX socket path, we pass the libvirt driver URI.
The custom netcat then decides which socket path to use based on the
remote build host environment.
We still have to support netcat for interoperability with legacy libvirt
versions, but we can default to the new virt-nc.
Daniel P. Berrangé (10):
rpc: merge logic for generating remote SSH shell script
remote: push logic for default netcat binary into common helper
remote: split off enums into separate source file
remote: split out function for parsing URI scheme
remote: parse the remote transport string earlier
remote: split out function for constructing socket path
remote: extract logic for determining daemon to connect to
remote: introduce virt-ssh-helper binary
rpc: switch order of args in virNetClientNewSSH
rpc: use new virt-ssh-helper binary for remote tunnelling
