Subject: [PATCH] virtio-net: init link state correctly

From: Jason Wang <jasowang@...hat.com>

For device that supports VIRTIO_NET_F_STATUS, there's no need to
assume the link is up and we need to call nerif_carrier_off() before
querying device status, otherwise we may get wrong operstate after
diver was loaded because the link watch event was not fired as
expected.

For device that does not support VIRITO_NET_F_STATUS, we could not get
its status through virtnet_update_status() and what we can only do is
always assuming the link is up.
