Let's be a bit more specific about the problem maybe?

when vhost's attempt to start polling a descriptor fails, we remove the
poll->wqh entry from wait queue but do not clear it, so the following
cleanup (e.g. on release) will attempt to remove it again.

To fix, switch to vhost_poll_stop() which zeros poll->wqh
after removing poll from waitqueue to make sure it won't be freed twice."


the patch itself is fine though:
