Description

Virtio is a specification for virtual I/O devices that allows to use paravirtualized drivers with an otherwise fully-virtualized guest OS, leading to more efficient I/O.

Virtio network device (virtio-net) is currently supported by KVM and VirtualBox.

HelenOS might need a virtio network device driver if we want to run it in a KVM-hosting and serve some web content (e.g. microkernel.info) to the public from it.
