Subject: Re: [virtio-comment] [PATCH] reserve device ID for hwsim wireless simulation


> The Linux mac80211-hwsim module currently allows simulation of
> multiple wireless radios on a shared medium, and has an existing
> API for this to work through a userspace implementation of the
> medium simulation (e.g. implemented by wmediumd).
> In order to simplify working with virtual machines and to enable
> (time-compressed) simulation use cases, allocate a virtio device
> ID to allow carrying this protocol over virtio in addition to
> the current netlink sockets.
> Since device ID 28 was previously requested, use 29.

I evidently forgot to request a TC vote on this before, hereby doing
