Subject: [PATCH v2 0/4] introduce virtio vhost-user backend device type

Hi everyone,

this PATCH presents an updated version of the RFC virtio device spec for
the virtio-vhost-user device. The initial RFC implementation can be
found here: [1].

This PATCH is split into four parts:

1. the first commit is just a refactored version of the initial RFC
implementation [1]. I just moved the device spec into a separate .tex
file and changed the device id from #24 to #28 since the ids #24-#27 are

2. the second commit fixes some minor issues with the device spec. This
is quite straightforward.

3. the third commit enhances the notification capability with some
device/driver requirements. This makes sense because the notification
capability behaves similarly to the MSI-X capability, thereby having
some requirements that need to be mentioned.

4. the fourth commit synchronizes the shared memory capability with a
recent patch [2] that attempts to standardize a standalone
SHARED_MEMORY_CFG virtio capability.

This v2 of the patchset addresses Stefan's comment about the device id.
In specific, I changed device id from #25 to #28 since the device ids
#25-#27 are reserved.

Looking forward to your comments.
