Minor nit for $SUBJECT: this isn't a kvm-unit-tests patch, that's just
one consumer :)
And subchannel is one word in s390-speak.

OK, surely better for grep


Some questions regarding this device and its intended usage:

- What are you trying to test? Basic ccw processing, or something more
   specific? Is there any way you can use the kvm-unit-test
   infrastructure to test basic processing with an existing device?
I'm also curious about the big picture (what is in scope and what out
of scope). Your design should be evaluated in the light of intended

BTW have you had a look at this abandoned patch-set of mine:


No, but now yes.

Yes, it is something similar, I can remember as you did it.

We made some different design decisions, while aiming essentially for the
same. Maybe it's due to different scope, maybe not. For instance one
can't test IDA with PONG, I guess.

No not now.
