So spec said

"
The following driver-read-only field, max_virtqueue_pairs only exists
if VIRTIO_NET_F_MQ or VIRTIO_NET_F_RSS is set.
"

My understanding is that the field is always valid if the device
offers the feature.

Btw, even if the spec is unclear, it would be very hard to "fix" it
without introducing a new feature bit, it means we still need to deal
with device without the new feature.
