Hi Joel, Peter, Mst,

Some virtio-net with virtio-mmio performance data on ARM added as followed:

Type of backend bandwith(GBytes/sec)
virtio-net 0.66
vhost-net 1.49
vhost-net with irqfd 2.01

Test cmd: ./iperf -c 192.168.0.2 -P 1 -i 10 -p 5001 -f G -t 60

From this test data, irqfd has great improvement (about 30%) on performance.
So maybe it's necessary to enable multiple irq support to make vhost-net
with virtio-mmio on ARM be able to use irqfd.

How do you guys think? Look forward for your feedback.

Thanks,
Shannon
