I hadn't sent it out until now, but the userspace bits for all the time-
travel and PCI-over-vhost-user are here:

If anyone has any suggestions on a good example PCI device that already
has a driver upstream I'd be interested - I looked for something simple
like LED or GPIO but no such thing I could find (that wasn't platform
dependent in some way). So far I've only implemented a virtual Intel
WiFi NIC, but that depends on a large body of code I can't publish. As
an example, it would be nice to write (and publish there) a simple PCI
device implementation. :)
