Subject: [PATCH 2/2] virtio-net: fix buggy features advertised by host

This patch tries to detect the possible buggy features advertised by host
and fix them. One example is booting virtio-net with only ctrl_vq disabled,
qemu may still advertise many features which depends on it. This will
trigger several BUG()s in virtnet_send_command().

This patch utilizes the fix_features() method, and disables all features that
depends on ctrl_vq if it was not advertised.

This fixes the crash when booting with ctrl_vq=off.
