Subject: [PATCH] *** Vhost-pci RFC v2 ***

This RFC proposes a design of vhost-pci, which is a new virtio device type.
The vhost-pci device is used for inter-VM communication.

Changes in v2:
1. changed the vhost-pci driver to use a controlq to send acknowledgement
   messages to the vhost-pci server rather than writing to the device
   configuration space;

2. re-organized all the data structures and the description layout;

3. removed the VHOST_PCI_CONTROLQ_UPDATE_DONE socket message, which is redundant;

4. added a message sequence number to the msg info structure to identify socket
   messages, and the socket message exchange does not need to be blocking;

5. changed to used uuid to identify each VM rather than using the QEMU process
