During the Containers mini-summit at OLS, it was mentioned that there
are at least *FOUR* of these I/O controllers floating around.  Have you
talked to the other authors?  (I've cc'd at least one of them).

We obviously can't come to any kind of real consensus with people just
tossing the same patches back and forth.
