virtio-scsi driver

From:  Paolo Bonzini <>
Subject:  [PATCH v4 0/3] virtio-scsi driver
Date:  Fri, 20 Jan 2012 17:45:36 +0100
Message-ID:  <>
Cc:, Rusty Russell <>,, "Michael S . Tsirkin" <>, Stefan Hajnoczi <>, Mike Christie <>

This is the first implementation of the virtio-scsi driver, a virtual
HBA that will be supported by KVM.  It implements a subset of the spec,
in particular it does not implement asynchronous notifications for either
LUN reset/removal/addition or CD-ROM media events, but it is already
functional and usable.

Other matching bits:

- spec at

- QEMU implementation at git://,
  branch virtio-scsi

Please review.  I would like this to be included in 3.3, since the
possibility of regressions is obviously zero.

Paolo Bonzini (3):
  virtio-scsi: first version
  virtio-scsi: add error handling
  virtio-scsi: add power management support

    fixed 32-bit compilation; added power management support;
    adjusted calls to virtqueue_add_buf
