So I can put this in next, the issue I think is
that of security: currently selinux can if necessary block
access to creating virtio block devices.
But if we have more than one type we need a way for selinux to
block specific types. Can be a patch on top but pls work to

Another question is that with this userspace can inject
packets directly into net stack. Should we check CAP_NET_ADMIN
or such?
