Also, let's not repeat the vhost net mistakes, let's lock
everything to the order required by the virtio spec,
checking status bits at each step.
E.g.:
set backend features
set features
detect and program vqs
enable vqs
enable driver

and check status at each step to force the correct order.
e.g. don't allow enabling vqs after driver ok, etc
