Yes, that makes more sense. I'll add the description for it at next version patch.

BTW, may I have one more question? In the current design ideas, we partitioned
the vGPU display eventfd counted 8-byte value into at most 8 events to deliver
multiple display events, so we need different increasement counter value to
differentiate the events. As this is the exposed thing the QEMU has to know, we
plan adds a macro here VFIO_IRQ_SUBTYPE_GFX_DISPLAY_EVENTFD_BASE_SHIFT to
make sure the partitions shift in 1 byte, does it make sense putting here? Looking
forward to your and Gerd's comments. Thanks!


Best Regards,
Kechen
