>                 Key: VIRTIO-143
>                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/VIRTIO-143
>             Project: OASIS Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) TC
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: virtio 1.0 cs02
>         Environment: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com>
>            Reporter: Michael Tsirkin
>            Assignee: Michael Tsirkin
>             Fix For: virtio 1.0 cs03
> Virtio 1.0 cs02 doesn't include a modern balloon device.  At some
> point we'll likely define an incompatible interface with a
> different ID and different semantics.  But for now, it's not a
> big effort to support a transitional balloon device: this has the
> advantage of supporting existing drivers, transparently, as well
> as transports that don't allow mixing virtio 0 and virtio 1
> devices. And balloon is an easy device to test, so it's also
> useful for people to test virtio core handling of transitional
> devices.
