Yes, you're right. I have fixed it in my local repo,
but haven't sent out a new version yet.

I'll try to send out a new RFC today.

We had a similar discussion before. Michael prefers
to use VRING_EVENT_F_DESC when possible to avoid
extra interrupts if host is fast:

https://lkml.org/lkml/2018/4/16/1085
"""
I suspect this will lead to extra interrupts if host is fast.
So I think for now we should always use VRING_EVENT_F_DESC
if EVENT_IDX is negotiated.

Yes, you're right. Like the above one -- I have fixed
it in my local repo, but haven't sent out a new version
yet. Thanks for spotting this!

+1
