Are these the ones that interact with the PVH ones?

Nothing yet.

We are cleaning them up to get Ian's input. There are .. many things
here for this TODO - there is the feature persistent grant which gives a big
performance boost. Then there is the Wei Liu patches which need
some rework (they were RFC). The persistent grant (which is what
Annie is working on right now) nicely fit on top of Wei Liu's, but since
they (the RFC patches - which split the netback into per-vif threads)
are not yet ready - annie is looking to see if she can do some lookup
using the old netback mechanism.
