        Well, my guess is that virtio should need much less code than,
        say, ne2k.  And with GNU/Linux as the guest, it runs
        considerably (as in: times) faster.

        BTW, I was unable to find any Crynwr's packet drivers on the
        FreeDOS 1.1 image?

        ACK, thanks!

        Somehow, I've ended using mkdosdisk.sh to create
        ~/tmp/dos-exchange.image (thus -hdb ~/tmp/dos-exchange.image),
        which I access with Mtools from the host's side, like:

$ grep -F -- dos-ex .mtoolsrc 
drive x: file="/home/private/users/ivan/tmp/dos-exchange.image" partition=1
$ mdir x: 
 Volume in drive X has no label
 Volume Serial Number is 2599-F805
Directory for X:/

        I'm sure it'd be both faster and cheaper to print it ourselves
        than to wait fo delivery, so I'm interested mainly in files.
