Well. virtio has no concept of "bars" ... The most common virtio transport layer happens to be pci, which actually has bars. But we also have virtio-mmio (largely unused since arm got pci) and virtio-ccw (used on s390x). In any case it would be a layering violation. Figured meanwhile qemu got memfd support recently, i.e. it can be configured to back guest memory with memfd. Which makes the memfd route quite attractive. Guess I try switch udmabuf to require memfd storage as proof-of-concept. cheers, Gerd
