Subject: [PATCH 0/2] virtio-fs: add notification queue

This patch series adds the notification queue to the VIRTIO specification.
This new virtqueue carries device->driver FUSE notify messages.  They are
currently unused but will be necessary for file locking, which can block for an
unbounded amount of time and therefore needs a asynchronous completion event
instead of a request/response buffer that consumes space in the request
virtqueue until the operation completes.

Patch 1 corrects an oversight I noticed: the file system device was not added
to the Conformance chapter.
