[Qemu-devel] [PATCH v3 0/3] virtio-mmio: introduce eventfd support

 This patch set introduces eventfd support for virio-mmio. It was originally
published by Ying-Shiuan Pan but never got it to upstream:
 I have updated and successfully tested it with vhost-net. I confirm that this
solution significantly improves the network performance even without irqfd.
 I would like to upstream it, since virtio-mmio is still there. I know that
some of you consider it deprecated, however i believe this is not entirely
true. Because you can add it to machine models which are not supposed to
have PCI (like vexpress).
 An old patch set relied on additional "eventfd" option in order to disable
the support if not implemented in kernel. My version simply checks
kvm_eventfds_enabled() for this purpose, so backwards compatibility is much
 I decided to leave this set in three parts because ioeventfd support should
be enabled only when both host and guest notifiers are in place. I believe
it will not work with partial implementation, at least because vhost-net
requires both sets of eventfds. In this version i added correct reset handling.

Ying-Shiuan Pan (3):
  virtio-mmio: introduce set_host_notifier()
  virtio-mmio: introduce set_guest_notifiers
  virtio-mmio: start ioeventfd when status gets DRIVER_OK
