[RFE] Virtio 1 support for dpdk-vhost-port
Last modified: 2017-01-12 06:24:31 EST
Description of problem:
In the DPDK vhost-port (the counter part of vhost-user), add support
Bring the Qemu guest up with disable-legacy=on, disable-modern=off and check for proper operation
This is a requirement for efficient use of VFIO with Virtio devices, since it allows memory mapped operation removing the need for system calls.
Virtio-0 uses only port-IO (no memory IO).
- commit 15e9ee6982a4822ce395fd597dd500a61ceafa7c (vhost: enable virtio 1.0)
- commit 45c55d39c5ebb8f8e1e70401dd0492f6c935455b (vhost: fix build with old kernels)

The support is there for a long time, we don't need this BZ anymore.
