Subject: [PATCH requirements v4 0/7] virtio net requirements for 1.4

Hi All,

This document captures the virtio net device requirements for the upcoming
release 1.4 that some of us are currently working on.

This is live document to be updated in coming time and work towards it for
its design which can result in a draft specification.

The objectives are:
1. to consider these requirements in introducing new features
listed in the document and otherwise and work towards the interface 
design followed by drafting the specification changes.

2. Define practical list of requirements that can be achieved in 1.4
timeframe incrementally and also have the ability to implement them.

Please review mainly patch 5 at the priority.

Receive flow filters is the first item apart from counters to complete
in this iteration to start drafting the design spec.
Rest of the requirements are largly untouched other than Stefan's

1. Some more refinement needed for rx low latency and header data split
