> On win8 and win8 r2 hosts force SPC-3 compliance for MSFT virtual disks.
> Ubuntu has been carrying a similar patch outside the tree for a while now.
> Starting with win10, the host will support SPC-3 compliance. Based on all the
> testing that has been done on win8 and win8 r2 hosts, we are comfortable
> claiming SPC-3 compliance on these hosts as well. This will enable TRIM
> support on these hosts.
