I think you are correct, I may misunderstood something when I review this first
time. And I want to make sure we are on the same page: since 'mac_specified=1'
will set VIRTIO_NET_F_MAC in frontend_features, so only when user don't set mac
and we don't get mac in device will lead to this feature unsupported, right?

Yeah! That's good.
