== Description: ==
MUSER is a framework that allows PCI devices to be implemented in user space.
It leverages the Linux kernel VFIO/MDEV infrastructure, allowing such devices
to be easily accessed via standard VFIO interfaces and subsequently virtual
machines. These can be completely virtual and not backed by any real hardware.
It's primary use is for QEMU/KVM however it can be used without them.
We presented MUSER at KVM forum 2019 (November 1st) and was very well received
from the community, in fact there are many people from many organizations that
want to contribute to it.
