Hi Linus,

I'd also like to see this merged. Rather than going off and inventing
something completely new, Ohad has built on the existing virtio
infrastructure to implement IPC between CPUs and DSPs running
different operating environments. This is a strong step in the
RightDirection(tm) in my opinion and such behaviour should be
encouraged. :-)
