What would prevent that? Is it some qemu logic you're relying upon?
With current qemu 5.1 with lack of batching support, I get plenty calls
to set_map which result in calls to mlx5_vdpa_change_map().
If that happens before VIRTIO_CONFIG_S_DRIVER_OK then Imay fail (in case
I was not called to set VQs ready).
