Stefan Hajnoczi - Nov. 17, 2010, 4:19 p.m.
There used to be a limit of 6 KVM io bus devices inside the kernel.  On
such a kernel, don't use ioeventfd for virtqueue host notification since
the limit is reached too easily.  This ensures that existing vhost-net
setups (which always use ioeventfd) have ioeventfds available so they
can continue to work.
