Yes, we'll define shared memory as a device resource in the VIRTIO
specification. It will become part of the device model, alongside
virtqueues, configuration space, etc. That means devices can use shared
memory without it being tied to PCI BARs explicitly.

But only the PCI transport will have a realization of shared memory
resources in the beginning. We need to work together to add this
feature to the ccw and mmio transports.
