This does makes sense. I haven't seen the kernel patch yet, but I am guessing
you will use this max_vq size to define the capacity.

Do we really need this change? or is this something which is picked from the
Linux kernel?
If we do need it, then Cornelia suggested to split off any update to this header
into a separate patch, so that it can be replaced by a proper headers update
when it is merged.
