Vhost-user dequeue zero-copy support will be removed in
20.11. The only known user is OVS where the feature is
still experimental, and has not received any update for
several years. This feature faces reliability issues and
is often conflicting with new features being implemented.

on July 22nd. Ian, if you had time to discuss the topic with
