In addition to block and net, I see at least the following:- vmgl (paravirtualized 3D graphics) [http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~andreslc/xen-gl/]- scsi (for tape, cd writer, etc.) - framebuffer (with just one request to share the framebuffer?) There are probably more. Any ideas?- Fast inter-domain networking, a-la XenSocket.
- PCI (or your favorite HW bus) passthrough, for your favorite oddball device (e.g., crypto-accelerators).
