Recent debugging on vhost net zerocopy shows the need of
tracepoints. So to help in vhost{net} debugging and performance
analyzing, the following series adding basic tracepoints to
vhost. Operations of both vhost and vhost_net were traced in current
implementation.

A top-like satistics displaying script were introduced to help the
troubleshooting:
vhost statistics

TODO:
- performance test
- finalize which should be traced

Jason Wang (4):
  vhost: introduce queue_index for tracing
  vhost: basic tracepoints
  vhost_net: add basic tracepoints for vhost_net
  tools: virtio: add a top-like utility for displaying vhost satistics
