Since the Vhost-user device initialization has been reworked,
enabling the application to start using the device as soon as
the first queue pair is ready, NUMA reallocation no more
happened on queue pairs other than the first one since
numa_realloc() was returning early if the device was running.

This patch fixes this issue by only preventing the device
metadata to be allocated if the device is running. For the
virtqueues, a vring state change notification is sent to
notify the application of its disablement. Since the callback
is supposed to be blocking, it is safe to reallocate it
afterwards.

Is there a corner case? Numa_realloc may happen during vhost-user msg
set_vring_addr/kick, set_mem_table and iotlb msg. And iotlb msg will
not take vq access lock. It could happen when numa_realloc happens on
iotlb msg and app accesses vq in the meantime?

Thanks,
Chenbo

I think we are safe wrt to numa_realloc(), because the app's
.vring_state_changed() callback is only returning when it is no more
processing the rings.

Yes, I think it should be. But in this iotlb msg case (take vhost pmd for example),
can't vhost pmd still access vq since vq access lock is not took? Do I miss something?

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?
