Compared to userspace virtio-blk implementation, vhost-blk gives about 5% to 15% performance improvement.Same thing as tcm_host comment: It seems not 100% clear whether this driver will have major userspace using it. And if not, it would be very hard to support a driver when recent userspace does not use it in the end. I think a good idea for 3.6 would be to make it depend on CONFIG_STAGING. Then we don't commit to an ABI. For this, you can add a separate Kconfig and source it from drivers/staging/Kconfig. Maybe it needs to be in a separate directory drivers/vhost/staging/Kconfig.
I Cc'd the list of tcm_host in the hope that you can cooperate on this.
