Gerd Hoffmann - April 10, 2014, 9:07 a.m.
This allows to assign host input devices to the guest:

qemu -device virto-input-host-pci,evdev=/dev/input/event<nr>

The guest gets exclusive access to the input device, so be careful
with assigning the keyboard if you have only one connected to your
machine.

I'd prefer a name that does not imply
vhost infrastructure - which is an out of process QEMU backend
(kernel or another userspace process) accessing guest
memory directly.
This one is completely in-process.

You might want to limit this, requeue if there's
a storm of events.

Hmm is that all?
Don't we want to report versioning info to guests?

I guess the only thing we might want to here is bail out in case the
major version is != 1 (which implies a incompatible change).  The major
version didn't change so far though, and I think it is highly unlikely
that it'll ever happen.

cheers,

BTW this device should block migration, right?
