Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (VIRTIO-160) clarify mergeable buffer use

Michael S. Tsirkin created VIRTIO-160:

             Summary: clarify mergeable buffer use
                 Key: VIRTIO-160
                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/VIRTIO-160
             Project: OASIS Virtual I/O Device (VIRTIO) TC
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: virtio 1.0 cs04
         Environment: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@redhat.com>
            Reporter: Michael S. Tsirkin
             Fix For: virtio 1.1 cs01

Description of how devices use mergeable buffers
is not clear. The device clauses seem to use "descriptors" and buffers interchangeably while they are not the same. Further, the text seems to imply device should only use multiple buffers if a packet does not fit in a single one, but never actually says so.
