Hi David,
I'm very sorry -- I guess I must have missed something here -- I don't
remember somebody replied with S390 hypervisor socket
infrastructure... I'm re-reading all the replies, trying to locate the
reply and I'll find out why I didn't take it seriously. Sorry in advance.

This is not true. I'm absolutely open to any possibility to have an
alternative better implementation.
Please allow me to find the "S390 hypervisor socket infrastructure" reply
first and I'll report back ASAP.

I definitely agree and understand.
