Subject[PATCH 3/3] mlx5_vdpa: defer clear_virtqueues to until DRIVER_OK
While virtq is stopped,  get_vq_state() is supposed to
be called to get sync'ed with the latest internal
avail_index from device. The saved avail_index is used
to restate the virtq once device is started. Commit
b35ccebe3ef7 introduced the clear_virtqueues() routine
to reset the saved avail_index, however, the index
gets cleared a bit earlier before get_vq_state() tries
to read it. This would cause consistency problems when
virtq is restarted, e.g. through a series of link down
and link up events. We could defer the clearing of
avail_index to until the device is to be started,
i.e. until VIRTIO_CONFIG_S_DRIVER_OK is set again in

Fixes: b35ccebe3ef7 ("vdpa/mlx5: Restore the hardware used index after change map")
