    Subject[PATCH 0/2] virtio: add gfp_t parameter to add_buf
    We need to allocate memory to post indirect buffers,
    and sometimes drivers do this from a thread context,
    so it helps to pass in a gfp_t parameter.

    To avoid churn changing all drivers, add a new API
    with a _gfp prefix, and make the old call lacking
    gfp_t an inline wrapper.


    Michael S. Tsirkin (2):
    virtio: add_buf_gfp
    virtio-net: pass gfp to add_buf
