/**
 * @defgroup tevent_request The tevent request functions.
 * @ingroup tevent
 *
 * A tevent_req represents an asynchronous computation.
 *
 * The tevent_req group of API calls is the recommended way of
 * programming async computations within tevent. In particular the
 * file descriptor (tevent_add_fd) and timer (tevent_add_timed) events
 * are considered too low-level to be used in larger computations. To
 * read and write from and to sockets, Samba provides two calls on top
 * of tevent_add_fd: tstream_read_packet_send/recv and tstream_writev_send/recv.
 * These requests are much easier to compose than the low-level event
 * handlers called from tevent_add_fd.
 *
 * A lot of the simplicity tevent_req has brought to the notoriously
 * hairy async programming came via a set of conventions that every
 * async computation programmed should follow. One central piece of
 * these conventions is the naming of routines and variables.
 *
 * Every async computation needs a name (sensibly called "computation"
 * down from here). From this name quite a few naming conventions are
 * derived.
 *
 * Every computation that requires local state needs a
 * @code
 * struct computation_state {
 *     int local_var;
 * };
 * @endcode
 * Even if no local variables are required, such a state struct should
 * be created containing a dummy variable. Quite a few helper
 * functions and macros (for example tevent_req_create()) assume such
 * a state struct.
 *
 * An async computation is started by a computation_send
 * function. When it is finished, its result can be received by a
 * computation_recv function. For an example how to set up an async
 * computation, see the code example in the documentation for
 * tevent_req_create() and tevent_req_post(). The prototypes for _send
 * and _recv functions should follow some conventions:
 *
 * @code
 * struct tevent_req *computation_send(TALLOC_CTX *mem_ctx,
 *                                     struct tevent_req *ev,
 *                                     ... further args);
 * int computation_recv(struct tevent_req *req, ... further output args);
 * @endcode
 *
 * The "int" result of computation_recv() depends on the result the
 * sync version of the function would have, "int" is just an example
 * here.
 *
 * Another important piece of the conventions is that the program flow
 * is interrupted as little as possible. Because a blocking
 * sub-computation requires that the flow needs to continue in a
 * separate function that is the logical sequel of some computation,
 * it should lexically follow sending off the blocking
 * sub-computation. Setting the callback function via
 * tevent_req_set_callback() requires referencing a function lexically
 * below the call to tevent_req_set_callback(), forward declarations
 * are required. A lot of the async computations thus begin with a
 * sequence of declarations such as
 *
 * @code
 * static void computation_step1_done(struct tevent_req *subreq);
 * static void computation_step2_done(struct tevent_req *subreq);
 * static void computation_step3_done(struct tevent_req *subreq);
 * @endcode
 *
 * It really helps readability a lot to do these forward declarations,
 * because the lexically sequential program flow makes the async
 * computations almost as clear to read as a normal, sync program
 * flow.
 *
 * It is up to the user of the async computation to talloc_free it
 * after it has finished. If an async computation should be aborted,
 * the tevent_req structure can be talloc_free'ed. After it has
 * finished, it should talloc_free'ed by the API user.
 *
 * tevent_req variable naming conventions:
 *
 * The name of the variable pointing to the tevent_req structure

 *
 * The wrapper event context might do something like impersonation.
 *
 * tevent_context_push_use() must always be used in combination

 *
 * There is a global stack of currently active/busy wrapper event contexts.
 * Each wrapper can only appear once on that global stack!
 * The stack size is limited to 32 elements, which should be enough
 * for all useful scenarios.
 *
 * In addition to an explicit tevent_context_push_use() also
 * the invocation of an immediate, timer or fd handler implicitly
 * pushes the wrapper on the stack.
 *
 * Therefore there are some strict constraints for the usage of
 * tevent_context_push_use():
 * - It must not be called from within an event handler
 *   that already acts on the wrapper.
 * - tevent_context_pop_use() must be called before
 *   leaving the code block that called tevent_context_push_use().
 * - The caller is responsible ensure the correct stack ordering
 * - Any violation of these constraints results in calling
 *   the abort handler of the given tevent context.
 *
 * Calling tevent_context_push_use() on a raw event context
 * still consumes an element on the stack, but it's otherwise
 * a no-op.
 *
 * If tevent_context_push_use() returns false, it means
 * that the wrapper's before_use() hook returned this failure,
 * in that case you must not call tevent_context_pop_use() as
 * the wrapper is not pushed onto the stack.
