SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/5] virtio/vsock: introduce SOCK_SEQPACKET support.
Hi Arseny, thanks for your work on this!

I did a small review in a hope it helps.
Also it may be cool to have the driver feature
for that (so that the host can see if its supported).
But I guess this was already said by Michael. :)
