Michael S. Tsirkin - Oct. 25, 2010, 10:32 a.m.
DMA into memory while VM is stopped makes it
hard to debug migration (consequitive saves
result in different files).

Sending while vm is stopped has an even worse
effect as it confuses the bridges so that they do
not know where to send packets.

Fixing this completely is a large effort,
this patch does this for virtio-net since that
already tracks vm state.
