If devices always use descriptors in the same order in which they have
been made available. These devices can offer the VIRTIO_F_IN_ORDER
feature. If negotiated, this knowledge allows devices to notify the use
of a batch of buffers to virtio driver by only writing used ring index.

Vhost user device has supported this feature by default. If vhost
dequeue zero is enabled, should disable VIRTIO_F_IN_ORDER as vhost can’t
assure that descriptors returned from NIC are in order.
