Subject[KVM PATCH v2 0/2] irqfd
Date
(Applies to kvm.git b59cd3560111)

This series implements a mechanism called "irqfd". It lets you create
an eventfd based file-desriptor to inject interrupts to the guest. We
associate one gsi per fd for proper routing granularity.

This is v2. Changes since v1

*) Dropped notifier_chain based callbacks in favor of wait_queue_t::func
and file::poll based callbacks (Thanks to Davide for the suggestion)

--------
We do not have a user of this interface in this series, though note
future version of virtual-bus (v4 and above) will be based on this.

The first patch will require mainline buy-in, particularly from Davide
(cc'd). The last patch is kvm specific.

kvm-userspace.git patch to follow.

-Greg
