The vfio patch looks ok to me. Thomas, do you have further comments or
a preference on how to merge these? I'd tend to prefer the vfio
changes through my branch for testing and can pull the irq changes with
your approval, but we could do the reverse or split them and I could
follow with the vfio change once the irq changes are in mainline.
Thanks,

Alex
