SubjectRe: [PATCH v8 00/16] s390/vfio-ap: dynamic configuration support
This series has been on the mailing list since June 5th. It would be GREATLY
appreciated if these patches can get some attention so we can move
forward with providing dynamic Adjunct Processor configuration support for
our customers. Thanks in advance for your time.
