This sounds like a violation of the virtio spec. ACCESS_PLATFORM
depends on VERSION_1.

This will bring a lot of trouble, notice that the legacy/transitional
device doesn't work in several layers (both vdpa kernel and qemu).

If we can afford mandating mergeable rx buffers in the driver, it's
the most simple way.

I guess you should have the plan for the next generation ENI which
should support VERSION_1 and RING_PACKED.
