Subject[PATCH] virtio-blk: Update spec with new stats vq
From
Date
The diff below is an update to virtio-spec with specification of a stats
vq added to virtio-blk.

The idea behind adding a stats vq is to simplify pull of information
which exists only on the guest and can't be collected on the host.

The idea is basically same as the stats vq which exists in
virtio-balloon and reporting host memory statistics.
