Commit b1f416aa8d870fab71030abc9401cfc77b948e8e breaks vhost_net
because it always registers the virtio_pci_host_notifier_read() handler
function on the ioeventfd, even when vhost_net.ko is using the ioeventfd.
The result is both QEMU and vhost_net.ko polling on the same eventfd
and the virtio_net.ko guest driver seeing inconsistent results:

  # ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
  virtio_net virtio0: output:id 0 is not a head!

To fix this, proceed the same as we do for irqfd: add a parameter to
virtio_queue_set_host_notifier_fd_handler and in that case only set
the notifier, not the handler

        Interesting, I tested vhost (or thought so).  Can you try this
        patch instead?

Does this really make the code better than just reverting the patch?

I don't like this name because virtio-blk-data-plane also wants to use
the ioeventfd.  I suggest we call it use_handler (note logic is
reversed from with_vhost).

The main problem here is that the current code has calls to
event_notifier_get_fd.  These compile under Windows, but they will not
make sense when EventNotifier is ported to Windows because it will not
have a file descriptor.  So I want to remove event_notifier_get_fd from
public code, and reverting the patch is a step backwards.

Ok, noted.
