Subject: [PATCH net-next V2 3/3] vhost: don't touch avail ring if in_order is negotiated

Device use descriptors table in order, so there's no need to read
index from available ring. This eliminate the cache contention on
available ring completely.

Virito-user + vhost_kernel + XDP_DROP on 2.60GHz Broadwell

            Before /After
SMAP on:  4.8Mpps   5.3Mpps(+10%)
SMAP off: 6.6Mpps   7.0Mpps(+6%)
