Good point! But it looks like virtio-vdpa/virtio-pci doesn't support
that now. All virtqueues have the same maximum size.

This will be used by vring_create_virtqueue(). We need to specify the
maximum queue size supported by the device.

This will be used by vring_create_virtqueue() too.

OK, I will try to add more details.
