Just to make sure I understand here. So it looks to me we had two index. 
The first is the used index which is stored in the memory/virtqueue, the 
second is the one that is stored by the device.

For avail index I understand that the hardware index is not synced with 
the avail index stored in the memory/virtqueue. The question is used 
index, if the hardware one is not synced with the one in the virtqueue. 
It means after vq is suspended,  some requests is not completed by the 
hardware (e.g the buffer were not put to used ring).

This may have implications to live migration, it means those 
unaccomplished requests needs to be migrated to the destination and 
resubmitted to the device. This looks not easy.

Thanks
