Huawei Xie Jan. 30, 2015, 6:36 a.m. UTC
create vhost_cuse directory
move vhost-net-cdev.c into  vhost_cuse directory

vhost-cuse driver will be splitted into two parts:
	cuse driver specific message handling and common vhost message handling logic.

cuse driver specific message handling is in vhost_cuse directory.
vhost ioctl message is pre-processed there and then sent to virtio-net(virtio-net.c)
module if necessary. Some message handling is terminated in vhost-cuse or
vhost-user.

virtio-net.c provides common message handling for both vhost-cuse and vhost-user.
