[PATCH v3 4/4] virtio-blk: remove batch notification BH
Posted by Stefan Hajnoczi 10 months ago
There is a batching mechanism for virtio-blk Used Buffer Notifications
that is no longer needed because the previous commit added batching to
virtio_notify_irqfd().

Note that this mechanism was rarely used in practice because it is only
enabled when EVENT_IDX is not negotiated by the driver. Modern drivers
enable EVENT_IDX.
