Subject: [PATCH v3 21/25] virito_scsi: use freezable WQ for events

From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@...hat.com>

Michael S. Tsirkin noticed a race condition:
we reset device on freeze, but system WQ is still
running so it might try adding bufs to a VQ meanwhile.

To fix, switch to handling events from the freezable WQ.
