Subject: [PATCH 01/10] abstract: address lnovich comment

lnovich@redhat.com suggested rewording abstract,
making the following point:

. from what point of view is virtio like a physical device?
  it's very different from host POV
. "the guest" appears out of nowhere. It's the guest that runs
  in the vm of course.
. "not all that different" means similar so there's not need to
  be verbose

 This document describes the specifications of the “virtio” family of
 devices. These devices are found in virtual environments, yet by
-design they are not all that different from physical devices, and this
+design they look like physical devices to the guest
+within the virtual machine - and this
 document treats them as such. This similarity allows the guest to use standard
 drivers and discovery mechanisms.
