I think is fine.

Yes, please prepare a patch to discuss the VIRTIO spec changes.

For example for 'virtio_vsock_seq_hdr', I left a comment about 'msg_cnt'
naming that should be better to discuss with virtio guys.

Anyway, I reviewed this series and I left some comments.
I think we are in a good shape :-)
