Hello

This is the v8 of the patchset. Thank you very much for the
detailed feedback for v7. We appreciate your time. We believe
we have address all the comments for v7 in the current series.

The broader items we have addressed in this series are as follows:
- Removed the main channel / control channel.
- Enabled 1:1 mapping between irqfd:PCIDevice, moving away from
  shared interrupt lines to avoid collision between irqfds
- Defined an object type named “remote-object” that connects the
  device with its fd in the remote process. This object limits the
  number of remote devices to 1 per process to alleviate security
  concerns with multiple devices per process. We are addressing the
  authentication mechanism for multiple devices in the
  VFIO-over-socket proposal.

To touch upon the brief history of this project, we posted the
Proof Of Concept patches before the BoF session in 2018.
Subsequently, we posted RFC v1 [1], RFC v2 [2], RFC v3 [3],
RFC v4 [4], v5 [5], v6 [6] and v7 [7] of the patch series.
Following people contributed to the design and
implementation of this project:

We would like to thank QEMU community for your feedback in the
design and implementation of this project.

For the full concept writeup about QEMU multi-process, please refer to
docs/devel/qemu-multiprocess.rst. Also see docs/qemu-multiprocess.txt for
usage information.


We welcome all your ideas, concerns, and questions for this patchset.

I have finished reviewing this revision.

Please update the wiki page with the latest status, especially
limitations like no dirty memory logging (used by migration, TCG, VGA),
no MSI interrupts, no PCIe, no IOMMU support, etc.

https://wiki.qemu.org/Features/MultiProcessQEMU

Please name the machine type x-remote and the object -object
x-remote-object. "x-" is the convention for experimental features in
QEMU. It means that the interface is not stable and might change between
releases.
