Wrt this patch as far as I'm concerned you guys are bikeshedding.

Parav generally don't send nacks please they are not helpful.

Zhu Lingshan please always address comments in some way.  E.g. refer to
them in the commit log explaining the motivation and the alternatives.
I know you don't agree with Parav but ghosting isn't nice.

I still feel what we should have done is
not return a value, as long as we do return it we might
as well return something reasonable, not 0.

And I like it that this fixes sparse warning actually:
max_virtqueue_pairs it tagged as __virtio, not __le.

However, I am worried there is another bug here:
this is checking driver features. But really max vqs
should not depend on that, it depends on device
features, no?
