Description

The IO port driver hook functionality, added to bhyve to allow the viona driver to trap and accelerate accesses to the virtio queue notification port, is currently awkwardly "bolted onto the side" of the bhyve kernel code. It was done that way to avoid a larger divergence from upstream, which is less of a concern now. While doing the rework for #13244, we could more tightly integrate it into the new IO port handling.
