This series tries to access virtqueue metadata through kernel virtual

overheads like checks, spec barriers or even hardware feature

direct mapping and co-opreate VM management with MMU notifiers.

Test shows about 23% improvement on TX PPS. TCP_STREAM doesn't see
obvious improvement.

Thanks this is queued for next.

Did you want to rebase and repost packed ring support on top?
IIUC it's on par with split ring with these patches.

Yes, it's on the way.
