Subject: [PATCH requirements v5 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 work towards the interface design followed by drafting the
specification changes.

2. Define list of requirements that can be practical to achieve 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 comment.
