We can, but those are static attributes that is not expected to be 
changed by the driver.

Introduce callbacks for those static stuffs does not give us any advantage.

For group id and notification area, since we don't have a abstract of 
vdpa_virtqueue. The only choice is to introduce callbacks for them.

Maybe it's time to introduce vdpa_virtqueue.

Thanks
