I regularly before a release pull in fixes that were posted for qemu-stable.
This is one of them, I'll again do such a build and retest this issue with it.

I identified and backported (only one needed modification) 33 patches.
But as usual there might be some context needed on top - I have build that over 
night in [1]

Testing that on my reproducer

So yes, these changes fix the issue here (and a bunch of others).
I'll open up an MP to get these changes into Ubuntu 20.04.

  virsh command:

  error: Failed to detach device from /tmp/vf_interface_attached.xml
  error: internal error: End of file from qemu monitor

  steps to reproduce:
   1. create a VM over Ubuntu 20.04 (5.4.0-14-generic)
   2. attach PCI device to this VM (Mellanox VF for example)
   3. try to detaching  the PCI device using virsh command:
     a. create a pci interface xml file:
        <hostdev mode='subsystem' type='pci' managed='yes'>
        <driver name='vfio'/>
        <address type='pci' domain='0x0000' bus='0x11' slot='0x00' 
function='0x2' />
