Interesting.

Looking at vhost_can_busy_poll() it tries to poke pending vhost work and
exit the busy loop if it found one. So I believe something block the
work queuing. E.g did reverting 8241a1e466cd56e6c10472cac9c1ad4e54bc65db
fix the issue?

Checking jiffies is tricky, need to convert it to ms or whatever others.

How value 1 is determined here? And we need a complete test to make sure
this won't affect other use cases.

Another thought is introduce another limit of #packets, but this need
benchmark too.

Thanks
