Hi Changchun,

Yes, I agree. Also There may be the difference, if a virtio-net driver
on a guest isn't poll mode like a virtio-net device driver in the
kernel. In the case, existing vhost implementation uses the eventfd
kernel module, and vhost-user implementation uses eventfd to kick the
driver. So I guess there will be the difference.

Anyway, about device creation and destruction, the difference will come
from transmission speed between unix domain socket and CUSE. I am not
sure which is faster.
