Right now, we sprinkle #if defined(QEMU_IMG) && defined(QEMU_NBD) all over the
code. It's ugly and causes us to have to build multiple object files for
linking against qemu and the tools.

This patch introduces a new file, qemu-tool.c which contains enough for...

Use signalfd() to work around signal/select race

This patch introduces signalfd() to work around the signal/select race in
checking for AIO completions. For platforms that don't support signalfd(), we
emulate it with threads.

There was a long discussion about this approach. I don't believe there are any...

Fix CVE-2008-0928 - insufficient block device address range checking

Qemu 0.9.1 and earlier does not perform range checks for block device
