    contrib: add libvhost-user · 7b2e5c65

    Add a library to help implementing vhost-user backend (or slave).
    
    Dealing with vhost-user as an application developer isn't so easy: you
    have all the trouble with any protocol: validation, unix ancillary data,
    shared memory, eventfd, logging, and on top of that you need to deal
    with virtio queues, if possible efficiently.
    
    qemu test has a nice vhost-user testing application vhost-user-bridge,
    which implements most of vhost-user, and virtio.c which implements
    virtqueues manipulation. Based on these two, I tried to make a simple
    library, reusable for tests or development of new vhost-user scenarios.
