Resolve Issue #121: Support describing virtio-pmem as a shared memory region

Should the TC accept changes listed in the description to resolve issue 121, for inclusion in specification version(s) "virtio-v1.2-cs01", and future versions of the specification?

Please vote Yes if you agree with all of the following.
If you disagree, please vote No.
If you don't have an opinion, please vote Abstain.

I move that:
The TC agrees to resolve the following specification issue:
Issue #121: Support describing virtio-pmem as a shared memory region
--------------------------------------
Update the virtio-pmem spec to add support for describing the pmem region as a shared memory window. This is required to support virtio-pmem in Hyper-V, since Hyper-V only allows PCI devices to operate on memory ranges defined via BARs. When using the virtio PCI transport, shared memory regions are described via PCI BARs.

Reminder: A Voting Member must be active in a TC to maintain voting rights. As
the Virtio TC has adopted a standing rule to conduct business only by
electronic ballot, without Meetings, a Voting Member who fails to cast a ballot
in two consecutive Work Product Ballots loses his or her voting rights at the
close of the second ballot missed.
