That's my understanding too. I am still trying to get confirmation from
hardware guys. Will send when I have them.

Right, that's what I think too. In fact, I discussed that already with
Jason over the phone yesterday. The conclusion was since the only thing
that matters for a network device is the used index, I tried to return
the hardware used index in get_vq_state (instead of hardware available
index) and restore the value I get in set_vq_state into the hardware
used index. I am still not done with this experiment but will update.

This can happen regardless of what effort firmware does to complete all
pending requests. An example is the hot plugging of memory. The set map
call is called and mlx5 vdpa driver tears down the vitqueue objects
while the guest driver can still be posting requests to the virtqueue.
So we find ourselves in a situation and used index is behine the
available index.

Right, that's what I am checking but still no final conclusions. I need
to harness hardware guy to provide me with clear answers.
