Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH V9 3/4] pvrdma: initial implementation
From: Yuval Shaia <yuval.sh...@oracle.com>
PVRDMA is the QEMU implementation of VMware's paravirtualized RDMA device.
It works with its Linux Kernel driver AS IS, no need for any special guest
While it complies with the VMware device, it can also communicate with bare
metal RDMA-enabled machines and does not require an RDMA HCA in the host, it
can work with Soft-RoCE (rxe).
It does not require the whole guest RAM to be pinned allowing memory
over-commit and, even if not implemented yet, migration support will be
possible with some HW assistance.
