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.

Feeling Lucky to be a member of DragonFly Family :)
I started to port the NetBSD virtio driver, but didn't make it very far.
However, I did verify that the NetBSD virtio driver works – I tested a
NetBSD 5.0.2 guest on virtualbox with virtio-net.
I contacted Minoura and the NetBSD virtio driver has been updated. The
new version at http://www.minoura.org/~minoura/virtio-100605/ , if you
want to use that as a reference....
I am very interested in tracking virtio driver development. Would it be
possible to host your project on gitourious or something similar?
Thanks and good luck,
