From: Denis Plotnikov <dplotnikov@virtuozzo.com>

The goal is to reduce the amount of requests issued by a guest on
1M reads/writes. This rises the performance up to 4% on that kind of
disk access pattern.

The maximum chunk size to be used for the guest disk accessing is
limited with seg_max parameter, which represents the max amount of
pices in the scatter-geather list in one guest disk request.

Since seg_max is virqueue_size dependent, increasing the virtqueue
size increases seg_max, which, in turn, increases the maximum size
of data to be read/write from a guest disk.

More details in the original problem statment:
