Ok, so as proposed off-list by Jason, we could extend
VHOST_USER_[GET|SET]_VRING_BASE to have the following payload when
VIRTIO_F_RING_PACKED is negotiated:

Bit[0:14] avail index
Bit[15] avail wrap counter
Bit[16:30] used index
Bit[31] used wrap counter

Is everyone ok with that?

Another thing that I'd like to discuss is how do we reconnect in case of
user backend crash. When it happens, the frontend hasn't queried the
backend for last_avail_idx/last_used_idx and their wrap counters.

With split ring, when it happens, we set last_avail_idx to device's used
index (see virtio_queue_restore_last_avail_idx()).
Problem with packed ring is that wrap counters information is only in
the backend.

Can we get device's used index and deduce the wrap counter value from
corresponding descriptor flag?

Any thoughts?
