Yes, maybe. One case I can see now is when the device is down, in this
case netif_device_attach() won't try to wakeup the queue.

How do you trigger the issue? Just do suspend/resume?

Nope, you're very welcome to post patch directly.

As you've figured out, you can start with why netif_tx_wake_all_queues()
were not executed?

(Btw, does the issue disappear if you move netif_tx_disable() under the
check of netif_running() in virtnet_freeze_down()?)
