Subject: Re: [virtio-comment] [PATCH v2 0/3] Large shared memory regions

 This series formalises the idea of shared memory regions I'd
previously discussed and is intended for use with virtio-fs.

I've split it into three parts:

 a) A general definition of the idea

 b) A definition on virtio-pci using the layout previously
discussed; this still uses the list of capabilities.

 c) A definition on virtio-mmio; this is untested
however I thought best to include it since it shows that
it isn't tied to PCI.

This v2 addresses (hopefully all) comments from the initial posting,
except for CCW and the GPU/dynamic usage currently being
discussed by Frank. Cornelia has a suggested approach for CCW
that is being discussed, so it looks like we're getting there on
that. The GPU usage being discussed by Frank is diverging to a
very different usage.

I've modified the virtio-hostmem stuff to not be dynamic (and posted it);
I think we can get that kind of usage using your current definitions.

 shared memory: Define shared memory regions
 shared memory: Define PCI capability
 shared memory: Define mmio registers
