Linux v5.1.3 - vhost
tristate "Host kernel accelerator for virtio net"
depends on NET && EVENTFD && (TUN || !TUN) && (TAP || !TAP)
This kernel module can be loaded in host kernel to accelerate
guest networking with virtio_net. Not to be confused with virtio_net
module itself which needs to be loaded in guest kernel.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will
be called vhost_net.
tristate "VHOST_SCSI TCM fabric driver"
depends on TARGET_CORE && EVENTFD
Say M here to enable the vhost_scsi TCM fabric module
for use with virtio-scsi guests
tristate "vhost virtio-vsock driver"
depends on VSOCKETS && EVENTFD
This kernel module can be loaded in the host kernel to provide AF_VSOCK
sockets for communicating with guests. The guests must have the
virtio_transport.ko driver loaded to use the virtio-vsock device.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the module will be called
This option is selected by any driver which needs to access
the core of vhost.
bool "Cross-endian support for vhost"
This option allows vhost to support guests with a different byte
ordering from host while using legacy virtio.
Userspace programs can control the feature using the
VHOST_SET_VRING_ENDIAN and VHOST_GET_VRING_ENDIAN ioctls.
This is only useful on a few platforms (ppc64 and arm64). Since it
adds some overhead, it is disabled by default.
If unsure, say "N".
