Subject[NET PATCH 3/9] venet: add pre-mapped tx descriptor feature
Date
What: Pre-allocate and map our scatter-gather descriptors.

Why: The host cannot directly access guest memory, and therefore any
indirection adds additional overhead. We currently implement
scattergather by pushing a pointer to the sg-descriptor, which points
to the actual SKB. This means the host must take an extra read
just to obtain the pointer to the SKB data.

Therefore we introduce a new shared-memory region that consists of
pre-allocated scattergather descriptors. The host may then decode
a descriptor pointer as an offset to this pre-mapped region and
save time/overhead.
