Some questions after a quick glance:

1) It looks to me that the work could be queued from the path of 
vsock_transport_cancel_pkt() . Is that synchronized here?

2) If we decide to flush after dev_vqs(), is tx_run/rx_run/event_run 
still needed? It looks to me we've already done except that we need 
flush rx_work in the end since send_pkt_work can requeue rx_work.

Thanks
