Subject: [PATCH] virtio-pci: Reset device on shutdown

This fixes a hanging issue during guest shutdown.

The device is left enabled even though we removed it and disabled msix
during shutdown. If the virtio device happens to get a new event right
at this point, seeing msix is disabled, it may try to notify us with an
IRQ, which is totally unexpected thus will not be handled. In this
case the guest hangs.

Let's reset the device so that it will not generate any interrupts.
