Is a vq size of 1 valid? Does that mean you can use that 1 descriptor?

Odds are I probably misunderstood the ring config in the other hinting
implementation. Looking it over now I guess it was adding one
additional entry for a command header and that was why it was
reserving one additional slot. I can update the code to drop the "- 1"
if the ring is capable of being fully utilized.

Thanks.
