Actually first I am not sure we need these checks at all.
vhost_vdpa_config_validate already validates the values, right?

Second, what will happen when we extend the struct and then
run new userspace on an old kernel? Looks like it will just
fail right? So what is the plan? I think we should
allow a bigger size, and return the copied config size to userspace.
