Most of the IPCs we do already, to keep the devices separated from
each other. So the most common type of IPC comes 'for free' in that
model - and this is specific to virtualization so i'd not extend the
claim to the host kernel.

virtio is an IPC mechanism to begin with.

It's certainly not entirely free though so if this is implemented in
tools/kvm/ it should be configurable.

Thanks,

Ingo
