This patch series adds support for paravirtual device drivers that use
virtio.  virtio is a frame work in Linux for abstracting the details of
virtual IO so that a single device driver (like networking) can be used
with multiple hypervisors using a small shim layer.  Currently, Linux
supports a virtio network and a virtio block device and a shim layer for
lguest.   I have a PCI shim layer for virtio that is suitable for use in
QEMU.  This is currently in Rusty Russell's virtio tree awaiting the
Linux merge window to open again.

Hi Anthony, Rusty,

Can you set up an uptodate git repository for the kernel part, other community members
will also benefit.
I got an oops for vring_kick immediately on the first pkt while testing this patchset.
Going to debug it tomorrow, hopefully it's not because of patching.

Yeah, patches are required that aren't yet in Rusty's queue. I'll update the list once we've gotten his queue straightened out. The oops is most certainly from the use of unsigned int in vring_init instead of unsigned long. I have a patch on address@hidden for that but I don't think Rusty's pulled it in yet.
