I found there were already some related descriptions in file
xen/include/public/io/blkif.h. I'll send an new patch following the
protocol in that file, and leave file include/xen/interface/io/blkif.h
unchanged.

190 * max-ring-pages
191 * Values: <uint32_t>
192 * Default Value: 1
193 * Notes: DEPRECATED, 2, 3
194 *
195 * The maximum supported size of the request ring buffer in
units of
196 * machine pages. The value must be a power of 2.

302 * num-ring-pages
303 * Values: <uint32_t>
304 * Default Value: 1
305 * Maximum Value: MAX(max-ring-pages,(0x1 << max-ring-page-order))
306 * Notes: DEPRECATED, 2, 3
307 *
308 * The size of the frontend allocated request ring buffer in
units of
309 * machine pages. The value must be a power of 2.
310 *

Regards,
-Bob
