Subject: Re: [PATCH 00/10] Allow mdev drivers to directly create the vfio_device
Date: Mon, 14 Jun 2021 20:04:03 +0530	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <e6cecaed-3257-e636-52c2-abf7af2cdffa@nvidia.com> (raw)

Jason,

I couldn't find patch 1,2,4 and 5 of these series. Can you please keep 
kvm@vger.kernel.org cc for all patches?

Also it will be helpful if you can add version prefix, eg. 'v3' for this 
series, in subject line.

Thanks,
Kirti
