spinning for 100 usecs is pretty nasty... can this be changed to
usleep()?

not sure why you're making this volatile here... I suspect it doesn't do
what you really want on architectures with a weak memory ordering model,
so it would be better to make things explicit with a memory barrier plus
a comment explaining what you're doing.

same here but this function doesn't appear to have any callers.

I don't see any callers of this (or vnic_dev_get_pdev,
vnic_dev_get_size, vnic_dev_init_done, vnic_rq_error_status,
vnic_rq_mem_size, vnic_wq_error_status or vnic_wq_mem_size).

This looks way too big to inline.
