Really sorry for this, the auto-spell-correction always change “vhost” as “ghost”:(

>> The overall idea is to implement a rust crate for vhost-user protocol, and then extends the vhost driver in crosvm/firecracker to add a thin wrapper support both vhost (kernel) and vhost-user backends. The crate is in very early stage which only implements the skeleton and basic commands, so a long todo list:
