Yes, but the problem is we can't detect whether or not it's an legacy 
guest (e.g feature is not set).

Since from vhost-vDPA point of view the driver is Qemu, it means we need 
make qemu vhost-vDPA driver spec complaint.

E.g how about:

1) revert 452639a64ad8 and fix Qemu? In Qemu, during vhost-vDPA 
initialization, do a minial config sync by neogitating minimal features 
(e.g just VIRTIO_F_ACCESS_PLATFORM). When FEATURE_OK is not set from 
guest, we can only allow it to access the config space that is emulated 
by Qemu?

Then

2) Fix the virtio driver bug.

Or a quick workaround is to set (VIRTIO_F_ACCESS_PLATFORM instead of 0) 
in this case.
