Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
This update adds support for version 1.0 of the virtio protocol to the NetKVM driver. Improvements in virtio 1.0 include better resource utilization and better performance. Note that if the virtual device supports virtio 1.0 as well as the older protocol (referred to as virtio 0.9.5 or 0.9, or simply legacy), the driver will use virtio 1.0.
