That's because memory depends on shost->can_queue, not
shost->cmd_per_lun (see scsi_mq_setup_tags).

can_queue should depend on the virtqueue size, which unfortunately can
vary for each virtio-scsi device in theory. The virtqueue size is
retrieved by drivers/virtio prior to calling vring_create_virtqueue, and
in QEMU it is the second argument to virtio_add_queue.

For virtio-scsi this is VIRTIO_SCSI_VQ_SIZE, which is 128, so changing
can_queue to 128 should be a no brainer.
