Yes, number of indirect descriptors supported by the backend can
change, because you moved to a different backend, or because the
maximum supported by the backend has changed. It's also possible to
resume on a backend that has no indirect descriptors support at all.

Can you please add some check to that end? (ie: that there are no
pending requests on any queue?)

Thanks, Roger.
