vSec R80.20 with newer kernel (VirtIO SCSI and multi-queue VirtIO network?)

We currently host R80.10 vSec instances on a KVM virtualisation environment which uses Ceph as its backing storage. We would like to hear from anyone running R80.20 with the 3.10 kernel to confirm that it will use the RHEL6 based kernel and have support for VirtIO SCSI.

 

We are particularly interested in passing through discard (TRIM) operations to the underlying storage and accessing multiple virtual disc images with the 'VirtIO SCSI single' controller to handle concurrent I/O operations. Making use of multi-queue VirtIO network adapters is also of great interest to us.
