I thought host pins guest kernel buffer pages was good enough for TX
thought I didn't look up xiaohui's vhost asycn io patch in details.

What's the performance data Xiaohui got from using kiocb? I haven't seen
any performance number from him yet.

The simple integration is using macvtap + xiaohui's vhost asycn io
patch. I can make a try for TX only.
