Subject: [PATCH 0/6] virtio_balloon: virtio 1 support

Virtio 1.0 doesn't include a modern balloon device.
At some point we'll likely define an incompatible interface with a different
ID.  But for now, it's not a big change to support a transitional balloon
device: this has the advantage of supporting existing drivers, transparently.

The only issue is with the stats buffer, which has misaligned fields.
Seems easy to fix by prepending a 6 byte reserved field.

I'll post spec patch and qemu patches shortly.

Michael S. Tsirkin (6):
  virtio_balloon: transitional interface
  virtio: balloon might not be a legacy device
  virtio_ccw: support non-legacy balloon devices
  virtio_mmio: support non-legacy balloon devices
  virtio_pci: support non-legacy balloon devices
  virtio: drop virtio_device_is_legacy_only
