Subject: [PATCH V5 4/6] vDPA: !FEATURES_OK should not block querying device config space

Users may want to query the config space of a vDPA device,
to choose a appropriate one for a certain guest. This means the
users need to read the config space before FEATURES_OK, and
the existence of config space contents does not depend on

The spec says:
The device MUST allow reading of any device-specific configuration
field before FEATURES_OK is set by the driver. This includes
fields which are conditional on feature bits, as long as those
feature bits are offered by the device.
