The various notifications are introduced and specified in the common
(i.e. transport agnostic) portion of this specification. How
notifications are realised for a given transport is something each
transport has to specify.

Let's make the relationship between the virtio-ccw terms and the common
terms more obvious.

+Available buffer notifications are realized as a hypercall. No additional
+setup by the driver is needed. The operation of available buffer
+notifications is described in section \ref{sec:Virtio Transport Options /
+Virtio over channel I/O / Device Operation / Guest->Host Notification}.

+Used buffer notifications are realized either as so called classic or as
+adapter interrupts depending on a transport level negotiation. The
+initialization is described in sections \ref{sec:Virtio Transport Options
+/ Virtio over channel I/O / Device Initialization / Setting Up Indicators
+/ Setting Up Classic Queue Indicators} and \ref{sec:Virtio Transport
+Options / Virtio over channel I/O / Device Initialization / Setting Up
+Indicators / Setting Up Two-Stage Queue Indicators} respectively.  The
