Ack, if it is not a very big series, maybe better to include also the
tests so we can run them before merge the feature.

I understand that at least 2 follow-up series are waiting for this, one
of them targeting net-next and the bigger one targeting the virtio
tree. Am I correct?

IIUC the next series will touch only the vsock core
(net/vmw_vsock/af_vsock.c), tests, and documentation.

The virtio part should be fully covered by this series.

@Arseniy feel free to correct me!

DaveM suggests this should go via the virtio tree, too. Any different

For this series should be fine, I'm not sure about the next series.
Merging this with the virtio tree, then it forces us to do it for
followup as well right?

In theory followup is more on the core, so better with net-next, but
it's also true that for now only virtio transports support it, so it
might be okay to continue with virtio.

@Michael WDYT?
