Umm... Maybe kzalloc(), then? You have

struct vhost_msg_node {
struct vhost_msg msg;
struct vhost_virtqueue *vq;
struct list_head node;
};

and that's what, 68 bytes in msg, then either 4 bytes pointer or
4 bytes padding + 8 bytes pointer, then two pointers? How much
does explicit partial memset() save you here?
