Bug description:

   * vhost-user falls back to virtio-net which causes performance lose
  without specifying the vhostforce option. But it should be the default
  behavior for vhost-user, since guests using PMD doesn't support msi-x.

  [Test Case]

    create a vhost-user virtio backend without specifying the vhostforce 
option, i.e. -netdev 
    start the VM
    vhost-user is not enabled

  [Regression Potential]

   * none

  vhost user nic doesn't support non msi guests(like pxe stage) by default.
  Vhost user nic can't fall back to qemu like normal vhost net nic does. So we 
  enable it for non msi guests.

  The problem has been fix in qemu upstream  -
  And the patch needs to be backported to 1:2.2+dfsg-5expubuntu9.8 .
