Threading the network-io

Registered by Jan Kneschke on 2009-01-09

The proxy-core splits the life-cycle of the network handling into communication and user layers. Each of the two can run independently.

* the network-ops for all connections are independent
* the lua state is currently single-threaded

The network-ops can be threaded without interfering with the lua execution. By using a small pool of network-threads we can push data out in parallel. Several connections would be assigned (and stay) in one of the threads.

-> libevent -> event_base_*
