Description

Hi,

Here are the proposed kernel changes which allow the virtio drivers
(ported from FreeBSD) to build:

* 0001-make-device_probe_child-public.patch makes device_probe_child()
public, used by virtio_pci.c:
http://gitorious.org/dbd-virtio-drivers-freebsd-port/dbd-virtio-drivers-freebsd-port/blobs/master/pci/virtio_pci.c#line693

* 0001-Pull-in-FreeBSD-sglist.patch is the scatter/gather library used
by virtio-net.

Thanks,
Tim
