I can work out a better commit message, currently I have an example on
how to process MQ = 0. I will handle all conditional fields(MTC, MAC...) 
here.
So I will explain them both in general and details for every field.

We have this fix in this patch below:

return vdpa_dev_net_mq_config_fill(vdev, msg, features_device, &config);

this checks device features.
