No, I mean when you configure the dmadev with one vchan, make sure it does have
at least one vchanl, even the 'vchan == 0' case can hardly happen. 

Just like the function call sequence in test_dmadev_instance, test_dmadev.c.

If you only use rte_dma_info as input param, you will also need to call dmadev
API to get dmadev ID in rte_vhost_async_dma_configure (Or you add both rte_dma_info
and dmadev ID). So I suggest to only use dmadev ID as input.

Since now dmadev lib does not provide a way to query real nb_desc for a vchanl,
so I think we can just use max_desc.

But ideally, if dmadev lib provides such a way, the configured nb_desc and nb_vchanl
should be used to configure vhost lib.

@Bruce, should you add such a way in dmadev lib? As users now do not know the real
configured nb_desc of vchanl.
