Target version:-


Documented here: iothreads is the new x-data-plane and yields huge performance gains for block devices.

In order to activate it,

  1. an iothread (or more) needs to be defined
  2. virtio disks need to be passed in one iothread (or one per disk) as an attribute

I will submit a PR for this.
