[Qemu-devel] [RFC 0/2] vhost-user: Specify device IOTLB support

From: Maxime Coquelin
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC 0/2] vhost-user: Specify device IOTLB support
Date: Tue, 11 Apr 2017 12:10:00 +0200

This two-patches series aims at specifying the protocol update
required to support device IOTLB with user backends.

The protocol is very close to kernel backends, except that a new
communication channel is introduced to enable the slave to send
requests to the master.

While unix sockets are bidirectionnal, I create a dedicated channel
for slave intiated requests to simplify message handling with multi-
threaded masters and slaves.

Maxime Coquelin (2):
  spec/vhost-user: Introduce secondary channel for slave initiated
  spec/vhost-user spec: Add IOMMU support
