I really don't like the idea of trying to migrate the MSI-X across from
host to host while it is still active. I really think Qemu shouldn't be
moving this kind of data over in a migration.

I think that having the VF do a suspend/resume is the best way to go.
Then it simplifies things as all you have to deal with is the dirty page
tracking for the Rx DMA and you should be able to do this without making
things too difficult.
