[PATCH v4 10/25] virtio: add API to enable VQs early

From: Michael S. Tsirkin
Date: Mon Oct 13 2014 - 03:47:29 EST

virtio spec 0.9.X requires DRIVER_OK to be set before
VQs are used, but some drivers use VQs before probe
function returns.
Since DRIVER_OK is set after probe, this violates the spec.

Even though under virtio 1.0 transitional devices support this
behaviour, we want to make it possible for those early callers to become
spec compliant and eventually support non-transitional devices.

Add API for drivers to call before using VQs.

Sets DRIVER_OK internally.
