Subject[PATCH 3 of 5] virtio: support unlocked queue kick
Date
From
Based on patch by Christoph for virtio_blk speedup:

Split virtqueue_kick to be able to do the actual notification
outside the lock protecting the virtqueue. This patch was
originally done by Stefan Hajnoczi, but I can't find the
original one anymore and had to recreated it from memory.
Pointers to the original or corrections for the commit message
are welcome.
