Vhost PMD sends RTE_ETH_EVENT_QUEUE_STATE, and my assumption was that
the application would stop processing the rings when handling this
event and only return from the callback when it's one, but this seems
that's not done at least in testpmd. So we may not rely on that after
all :/.

We cannot rely on the VQ's access lock since the goal of numa_realloc is
to reallocate the vhost_virtqueue itself which contains the acces_lock.
Relying on it would cause a use after free.

Maybe the safest thing to do is to just skip the reallocation if
vq->ready == true.

Having vq->ready == true means we already received all the vrings info
from QEMU, which means the driver has already initialized the device.

It should not change runtime behavior compared to this patch since it
would not reallocate anyway.

What do you think?
