I think it's better to keep the size check: msg.size should equal sizeof(msg.payload.u64).

I think it's better to add a log after checking payload's value. Looking back to
vhost_user_set_memory_table, there's no way for user or developer to know what has
failed (vhost_user_write fails or NACK). Maybe it's also better to add error log in
or outside vhost_user_write :)

Thanks,
Chenbo

Indeed, we are lacking logs here, I added both a log when slave replies
NACK and when sendmsg fails.
