>From virtio spec I found:

It is also valid to send a VIRTIO_VSOCK_OP_CREDIT_UPDATE packet without previously receiving a
VIRTIO_VSOCK_OP_CREDIT_REQUEST packet. This allows communicating updates any time a change
in buffer space occurs.

So I guess there is no limitations to send such type of packet, e.g. it is not
required to be a reply for some another packet. Please, correct me if im wrong.
