The fundamental assumption of this patch series is to modify the driver in 
guest to self-emulate or track the device state, so that the migration may be 
I don't think we can modify OS, without modifying the drivers, even using the 
PCIe hotplug mechanism.  
In the meantime, modifying Windows OS is a big challenge given that only 
Microsoft can do. While, modifying driver is relatively simple and manageable 
to device vendors, if the device vendor want to support state-clone based
