Hi Greg,

I do not understand this comment. The full description is:
drivers: hv: dxgkrnl: Implement DXGSYNCFILE


dxgsyncfile is built on top of the Linux sync_file object and
provides a way for the user mode to synchronize with the execution
of the device DMA packets.

The IOCTL creates a dxgsyncfile object for the given GPU synchronization
object and a fence value. A sync_object file descriptor is returned to
the caller. The caller could wait for the object by using poll().
When the GPU synchronization object is signaled on the host, the host
sends a message to the virtual machine and the sync_file object is
Is this not enough?
