Stefan Hajnoczi - Dec. 14, 2012, 6 p.m.
The virtio-blk-data-plane feature is easy to integrate into
hw/virtio-blk.c.  The data plane can be started and stopped similar to
vhost-net.

Users can take advantage of the virtio-blk-data-plane feature using the
new -device virtio-blk-pci,x-data-plane=on property.

The x-data-plane name was chosen because at this stage the feature is
experimental and likely to see changes in the future.

If the VM configuration does not support virtio-blk-data-plane an error
message is printed.  Although we could fall back to regular virtio-blk,
I prefer the explicit approach since it prompts the user to fix their
configuration if they want the performance benefit of
virtio-blk-data-plane.

Limitations:
 * Only format=raw is supported
 * Live migration is not supported
 * Block jobs, hot unplug, and other operations fail with -EBUSY
 * I/O throttling limits are ignored
 * Only Linux hosts are supported due to Linux AIO usage
