Acquire resources on exporter #481

merged 11 commits into from Sep 9, 2019

commented Jul 31, 2019

Currently, the coordinator doesn't track which resources are used by which places. Accordingly, it can't detect if two places configured for the same resource are acquired at the same time.
To solve this, we need to refactor the coordinator to track the acquired state of resources and let it detect conflicts.
Additionally, as the exporter now knows which resources are acquired, we can start any helper processes only when needed.

remote/coordinator: make resource object persistent
Prevously, we would create new ResourceEntry objects even for updates of
existing resources. To keep coordinator-specific information for
individual resources (such as whether they are acquired for a place),
the natural way is to keep the objects around.

Introduce a ResourceImport class analogous to ResourceExport (used by
the exporter), which also stores the resource path as exposed to the
clients. This also avoids recreating the resource path every time.

remote/coordinator: store resource objects instead of only the path f…
…or acquired_resources

This will allow us to release the resources when the place is released
without searching for each resource by path.

remote: track resource acquired state in the exporter
This will allow the exporter to perform actions on acquire/release.

remote/exporter: register methods early
As the coordinator may call us back to acquire newly registered
resources, we need to register the methods sooner. They only affect
individual resources, so this doesn't introduce race conditions.

remote/coordinator: add locking via asyncio
To avoid problems resulting from concurrent modification calls from
clients, we need add coarse-grained locking at the exported entry-points
as a first step.

remote/exporter: unset port parameter after stopping ser2net
Otherwise, a old and invalid port would still be shown after the ser2net
was stopped.

remote/exporter: only start acquired resources
Also refactor the ResourceExport.poll() method to reduce complexity.

remote/exporter: reduce update delay
To reduce the waiting time for USB devices like fastboot or serial in
test suites, call poll slightly more often.
