I forgot to add the remaining things to do in next release:
1. More testing
2. Rebase on top of Vhost-vDPA batching support
3. Rebase on top of Olivier's protocol features fix
4. (Maybe) Loosen restrictions on IOVA as VA mode, by making Vhost-
   backend to use IOVA instead of directly VAs, but still warn IOVA
   as VA mode is advised to ensure init won't fail.

Regards,
Maxime
