[openstack-dev] Further SR-IOV / PCI passthrough discussion?

Subsequent to last week's PCI passthrough meeting, does anyone care to talk
any further about it?

I've had some interest in talking over use cases for passthrough as a
driver to discuss what features we might want (quite justified, since the
last discussion was pretty low level, and based on my and others'
experiences in developing for passthrough).  I've also had someone reach
out from the Xen camp about passthrough for Xen - which comes as no
surprise but does indicate that whatever we do should have a clean
interface at the virtualisation driver level.

We could

- talk further on a webex
- have a birds of a feather meeting at the summit prior to the
session-and-a-half that we have scheduled
- leave the presenters to deal with the information we've gathered so far
about passthrough and have our further conversations during the sessions

I would say it depends on whether we want a detailed proposal for work
(interfaces, units of work, timelines) to be presented in the sessions or
whether we would prefer to have the discussions then and deal with the plan
of work afterward.
