Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] Large shared memory regions

From: "Dr. David Alan Gilbert" <dgilbert@redhat.com>

  This series formalises the idea of shared memory regions I'd
previously discussed and is intended for use with virtio-fs.

I've split it into three parts:

  a) A general definition of the idea

  b) A definition on virtio-pci using the layout previously
discussed; this still uses the list of capabilities.

  c) A definition on virtio-mmio; this is untested
however I thought best to include it since it shows that
it isn't tied to PCI.

This v2 addresses (hopefully all) comments from the initial posting,
except for CCW and the GPU/dynamic usage currently being
discussed by Frank.  Cornelia has a suggested approach for CCW
that is being discussed, so it looks like we're getting there on
that.  The GPU usage being discussed by Frank is diverging to a
very different usage.


Dr. David Alan Gilbert (3):
  shared memory: Define shared memory regions
  shared memory: Define PCI capability
  shared memory: Define mmio registers
