[libvirt] [PATCHv3 00/11] Multiple TX queue support



Fixed version with Laine's comments worked in [1].

Patches 2, 3 and 5 has been ACKed already. BTW, patch 4 is really a different
to patch 3. The only thing they share is a commit message body.

Kernel and subsequently QEMU learned multiple transmit queues a while ago. The
feature has a nice advantage, it allows a single guest to transmit multiple
flows of network data using multiple CPUs simultaneously which increase traffic
bandwidth. A lot.

The documentation how to use this is available at [2] or [3].
