I assume that the clearing for vhost-vdpa would be done via (qemu code),

vhost_dev_start()->vhost_vdpa_dev_start()->vhost_vdpa_call(status |
VIRTIO_CONFIG_S_DRIVER_OK)

which is _after_ vhost_virtqueue_start() gets called to restore the
avail_idx to h/w in vhost_dev_start(). What am I missing here?
