Did you mean to say "driver" instead of "device" here ? The
Virtio-device is the virtual hardware entity which is presented to the
guest OS by the host OS. And the software talking to this device at
the guest is called as the "driver".

I have replaced "host" with "device" and "guest" with "driver" at as
many places as possible. Thanks.
