I meant can the following things happen?

1) some vDPA device driver probe the hardware and call 
vdpa_request_irq() in its PCI probe function.
2) vDPA device is probed by vhost-vDPA

Then irq bypass can't work since we when vdpa_unsetup_irq() is called, 
there's no driver bound. Or is there a requirement that 
vdap_request/free_irq() must be called somewhere (e.g in the set_status 
bus operations)? If yes, we need document those requirements.
