Summary: libvdexcable: x-cable library

Initial Comment:

The patch attached introduces a new library libvdexcable implementing the 
protocol used by vde_plug to send data using a single socket.

It also introduces slirpvdex, a modified slirp that uses the library to send 
and receive packets over stdio.

This is useful for instance, to run slirp in a remote host without requiring a 
vde_swith there:

  $ dpipe vde_plug = ssh my.host.org slirpvdex

My real aim behind this library is to be able to use slirpvde from simh 
(http://simh.trailing-edge.com/) without requiring running a vde_swith (and 
this is where the x-cable name comes from).

Hi Salvador!

Sorry for the immense delay..
rd235 introduced a feature similar to the one you're proposing here
(commits 404 - 407) which will be part of the upcoming 2.3.0 release,
therefore I'm closing this bug.

Feel free to reopen it for additional comments.

Thank you,

Hi Salvador!

I'm sorry but we're quite busy in these days so we didn't have any chance
to have a look at your patch. We'll try to post a (more useful) comment as
soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your contribution,
