Datagram sockets are connectionless and unreliable.
The sender does not know the capacity of the receiver
and may send more packets than the receiver can handle.

Add two more dedicate virtqueues for datagram sockets,
so that it will not unfairly steal resources from
stream and future connection-oriented sockets.

v1 -> v2: use qemu cmd option to control number of queues,
        removed configuration settings for dgram.
v2 -> v3: use ioctl to get features and decide number of
        virt queues, instead of qemu cmd option.
v3 -> v4: change DGRAM feature bit value to 2. Add an argument
        in vhost_vsock_common_realize to indicate dgram is supported or not.
v4 -> v5: don't open dev to get vhostfd. Removed leftover definition of
v5 -> v6: fix style errors. Imporve error handling of
        vhost_vsock_dgram_supported. Rename MAX_VQS_WITH_DGRAM and another one.

VIRTIO_VSOCK_F_DGRAM support should work equally well for
vhost-user-vsock. I don't think there is a need to disable it here.

Stefano mentioned in previous email ( V3 ) that I can disable dgram
for vhost-user-vsock for now. I think we need some extra changes to
fully support vhost-vsock-user, like feature discovery?

I think Stefan is suggesting something similar of what we discussed here:

We can allocate all the queues, and choose at runtime which queue to use for events, that is the only queue used by QEMU.

We can check that in vhost_vsock_common_start(), just before starting the device, where we know the features acked by the guest (vdev->guest_features).

And I agree that would be the best approach, since we don't need discovery anymore, and the same code works also for vhost-user-vsock as is.

In second thought, I think we really need to know whether the guest has acked the feature or not.

Otherwise if QEMU and host kernel support dgram, but guest kernel doesn't, QEMU will use fifth queue instead of third for events, but guest doesn't support it.
