So count me in if you need support, too
As the Proportional RSS project is on its verge of completion and added to
dragonfly. I request you guys to grant me permission to move forward with
implementation of virtio drivers on dragonfly. If a member among us is doing
this project, I will go for another.
I would like to do the virtio project with one of my friend (Sandip Jadhav - CS
Grad Student Binghamton University ), he too is in dragonfly kernel mailing
list. This project can give us exposure to device drivers in dragonfly and also
can convert our conceptual knowledge of virtio to some practical length. I
thought of doing in a group, so that we can move with a pace suitable for
further contributions to dragonfly.
Great! I am looking forward to switching my KVM dragonfly box away from
using the emulated disk/network drivers towards using the virtio drivers
once they become reality!
Count me in for testing!
