I'm implementing the "[RFC virtio-dev] vhost-user-slave: add vhost-user
slave device type" device in QEMU and DPDK in order to show how the
ideas we've discussed work.

Here is the VIRTIO spec link again:

It integrates into DPDK's librte_vhost so that existing vhost-user code
works over AF_UNIX and virtio-vhost-user without code duplication or
rewriting the devices.

I hope you'll like the code when it's done.  If not, it still has useful
code and ideas that would be needed to complete the vhost-pci RFC work
like extending the PCI transport in the VIRTIO spec, handling vhost-user
reconnection, etc.

I'm aiming to send an RFC in the next 2 weeks.
