Interesting, thanks for the patches. So IIUC most of the gain is really
overcoming some of the shortcomings of virtio 1.0 wrt cache utilization?

Which is fair enough (1.0 is already deployed) but I would like to avoid
making 1.1 support harder, and this patchset does this unfortunately,
see comments on individual patches. I'm sure it can be addressed though.

Is this with or without tx napi in guest?
