I agree that make sense to make it configurable from the user, but I'm
not sure an ioctl() is the best interface with this device simulator.

Maybe we can use a module parameter as in the net simulator or even
better using the new vdpa management tool recently proposed (I need to
check better how we can extend it).

What do you think?

Thanks,
Stefano
