Hi Tetsuya,

TBH, I was considering to reject your v4: the code was quite messy. But
this v5 changed my mind a bit: it's much cleaner.

But still, I'd ask do we really need 2 virtio for container solutions?

That results to the same question that I'm sure you have already
answered before: in which way your solution outweighs Jianfeng's?

The reason I want to ask again is: 1), I wasn't actively participating
the discussion in last release, besides some common comments on virtio,
2), maybe it's time to make a decision that should we take one solution
only, if so, which one, or should we take both?

Thomas is Cc'ed, hope he can help on the decision making.
