[PATCH net-next v8 0/4] Enable virtio_net to act as a standby for a passthru device
This is another update based on feedback from MST and Stephen on the last patchset. Hopefully this series can be integrated and any further enhancements can be made on top of this patchset. v8: - Made the failover managment routines more robust by updating the feature bits/other fields in the failover netdev when slave netdevs are registered/unregistered. (mst) - added support for

[PATCH net-next v10 0/4] Enable virtio_net to act as a standby for a passthru device
The main motivation for this patch is to enable cloud service providers to provide an accelerated datapath to virtio-net enabled VMs in a transparent manner with no/minimal guest userspace changes. This also enables hypervisor controlled live migration to be supported with VMs that have direct attached SR-IOV VF devices. Patch 1 introduces a new feature bit VIRTIO_NET_F_STANDBY that can be

[PATCH net-next v11 3/5] net: Introduce net_failover driver
The net_failover driver provides an automated failover mechanism via APIs to create and destroy a failover master netdev and mananges a primary and standby slave netdevs that get registered via the generic failover infrastructure. The failover netdev acts a master device and controls 2 slave devices. The original paravirtual interface gets registered as 'standby' slave netdev and a

[PATCH v7 net-next 2/4] net: Introduce generic failover module
This provides a generic interface for paravirtual drivers to listen for netdev register/unregister/link change events from pci ethernet devices with the same MAC and takeover their datapath. The notifier and event handling code is based on the existing netvsc implementation. It exposes 2 sets of interfaces to the paravirtual drivers. 1. existing netvsc driver that uses 2 netdev model. In
