[Spice-devel] [PATCH spice-protocol 0/2] Removing sub_list from messages header

This patch series introduces SPICE_COMMON_CAP_HEADER_NO_SUB, in order to spare
the 4 bytes of sub_list that were sent for all the messages.
I replaced the sub_list functionality by using an additional
marshaller in red_channel, which I named urgent marshaller. This
marshaller allows marshalling messages that we find out we need to send
in the middle of marshalling another message (and we need to send them before it).
In addition, I introduce the msg type SPICE_MSG_LIST, for cases that the "urgent" message
is composed of several messages, and for future use, in case we wish to aggregate
several messages together.


Yonit Halperin (2):
  Add support for a header without sub list.
  Release 0.9.2
