[opensuse-virtual] CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO, req'd (?) for Xen guest vif model == 'virtio-net' is UNSET in kernel-default config?
I note @

https://wiki.xenproject.org/wiki/QEMU_Upstream#VirtIO (last modified on

that

VirtIO

It's the PV drivers from KVM world. To use it for network, just use
'virtio-net' as a model:

vif = [ 'model=virtio-net' ]

You will need those kernel modules to use a VirtIO device

virtio_mmio virtio_pci virtio_net

But that

egrep -i "virtio_mmio|virtio_pci|virtio_net"
/boot/config-4.11.3-2.g7262353-default
CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET=m
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI_LEGACY=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO is not set

Is

virtio_mmio

no longer required for

model=virtio-net

usage?

If it is, is there a reason for NOT currently enabling

CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO

in default kernel config?
