don't make this cancel conditional on has_feature -
this is out of data path, and code will be cleaner
if we do it unconditionally.

It's probably easier to just do this unconditionally.
The only reason a feature bit might make sense is
that this way host knows guest will announce self.

Alternatively, if you want the ability to reuse the
status bit for something else, set must be conditional as well.

Do this unconditionally too.

I would put this in bit 8 (0x100), this way low status byte
is RO, high byte is RW.
