[solved] Request addition of virtio drivers built into kernel by default

I'd like to request that the gracious individuals who spend their time working on the LEDE project
include all virtio drivers (virtio_net, virtio_balloon, virtio_rng) into the base image for x86. This would be very helpful in situations where KVM is utilized.

Thanks!

That would be awesome. I'm using openwrt x86 image for just that reason and would love to switch to LEDE. I hope the developers can re-enable this option in the kernel.

I concur. I abuse KVM nearly as much as LEDE, and having this available for my own lazy hacking would be awesome to have streamlined into the standard x86 image.

I would also like to say this would save me a ton of time. I would love to see this implemented.

the x64 target has these

CONFIG_HW_RANDOM_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_SCSI_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_BALLOON=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_BLK=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_CONSOLE=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_MMIO_CMDLINE_DEVICES is not set
CONFIG_VIRTIO_NET=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI=y
CONFIG_VIRTIO_PCI_LEGACY=y
# CONFIG_VIRTIO_VSOCKETS is not set

are you saying that you need to use 32bit virtio images ?

Turns out the modules were built into the kernel. Thanks!
