Please include an actual explanation for this change instead of linking
to slides.  Why are you trying to get rid of memory allocation failure
messages?

#define vq_err(vq, fmt, ...) do {                                  \
                pr_debug(pr_fmt(fmt), ##__VA_ARGS__);       \
                if ((vq)->error_ctx)                               \
                                eventfd_signal((vq)->error_ctx, 1);\
        } while (0)

You silently dropped the eventfd_signal() call.  Please explain.
