This patch actually fails to compile:

drivers/virtio/virtio_mmio.c: In function ‘vm_notify’:
drivers/virtio/virtio_mmio.c:229:13: error: ‘struct virtio_mmio_vq_info’ has no member named ‘queue_index’
drivers/virtio/virtio_mmio.c: In function ‘vm_del_vq’:
drivers/virtio/virtio_mmio.c:278:13: error: ‘struct virtio_mmio_vq_info’ has no member named ‘queue_index’
make[2]: *** [drivers/virtio/virtio_mmio.o] Error 1

It probably misses the following hunks:
