+Multi-process QEMU
+==================
+
+This document describes how to configure and use multi-process qemu.
+For the design document refer to docs/devel/qemu-multiprocess.
+
+1) Configuration
+----------------
+
+To enable support for multi-process add --enable-mpqemu
+to the list of options for the "configure" script.
+
+
+2) Usage
+--------
+
+Multi-process QEMU requires an orchestrator to launch. Please refer to a
+light-weight python based orchestrator for mpqemu in
+scripts/mpqemu-launcher.py to lauch QEMU in multi-process mode.
+
+Following is a description of command-line used to launch mpqemu.
+
+* Orchestrator:
+
+  - The Orchestrator creates a unix socketpair
+
+  - It launches the remote process and passes one of the
+    sockets to it via command-line.
+
+  - It then launches QEMU and specifies the other socket as an option
+    to the Proxy device object
+
+* Remote Process:
+
+  - QEMU can enter remote process mode by using the "remote" machine
+    option.
+
+  - The orchestrator creates a "remote-object" with details about
+    the device and the file descriptor for the device
+
+  - The remaining options are no different from how one launches QEMU with
+    devices.
+
+  - Example command-line for the remote process is as follows:
+
+      /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64                                        \
+      -machine remote                                                    \
+      -device lsi53c895a,id=lsi0                                         \
+      -drive id=drive_image2,file=/build/ol7-nvme-test-1.qcow2           \
+      -device scsi-hd,id=drive2,drive=drive_image2,bus=lsi0.0,scsi-id=0  \
+      -object remote-object,id=robj1,devid=lsi1,fd=4,
+
+* QEMU:
+
+  - Since parts of the RAM are shared between QEMU & remote process, a
+    memory-backend-memfd is required to facilitate this, as follows:
+
+    -object memory-backend-memfd,id=mem,size=2G
+
+  - A "pci-proxy-dev" device is created for each of the PCI devices emulated
+    in the remote process. A "socket" sub-option specifies the other end of
+    unix channel created by orchestrator. The "id" sub-option must be specified
+    and should be the same as the "id" specified for the remote PCI device
+
+  - Example commandline for QEMU is as follows:
+
+      -device pci-proxy-dev,id=lsi0,socket=3
