VirtIO progress

Tim Bisson and others put together a virtual network driver for DragonFly, based on FreeBSD’s version.  Strangely, the emulated re(4) driver performed better, though their initial test was pretty minimal.  The already existing DragonFly virtual block device driver is still based on NetBSD’s version.  There are some positive side effects from bringing in this work, in any case.
