From: Yuri Benditovich <address@hidden>

Upon set_link monitor command or upon netdev deletion
virtio-net sends link down indication to the guest
and stops vhost if one is used.
Guest driver can still submit data for TX until it
recognizes link loss. If these packets not returned by
the host, the Windows guest will never be able to finish
disable/removal/shutdown. In order to allow qemu to
discard these packets, virtio queue shall update
its internal structure upon vhost stop.

Changes from v1:
 - added drop for outstanding tx packets for tx=timer
 - (mainly for case of vhost=off)
   fixed link down flow to drop outstanding packets and
   ensure tx queue notification enabled

Yuri Benditovich (3):
  net: Add virtio queue interface to update used index from vring state
  net: vhost stop updates virtio queue state
  net: virtio-net discards TX data after link down
