Thanks a lot, this is very exciting!
Dave, given the holiday, attempts to wrap up the 1.1 spec and the
patchset size I would very much appreciate a bit more time for
review. Say until Nov 28?

Could you pls clarify - do you mean it doesn't yet work with vhost
because of a vhost bug, and to test it with the linked patches
you had to hack in _F_NEXT? Because I do not see _F_NEXT
in indirect descriptors in this patch (which is fine).
Or did I miss it?
