From: Paolo Bonzini <pbonzini@redhat.com>

virtio-net has code to flush the queue and notify the iothread
whenever new receive buffers are added by the guest.  That is
fine, and indeed we need to do the same in all other drivers.
However, notifying the iothread should be work for the network
subsystem.  And since we are at it we can add a little smartness:
if some of the queued packets already could not be delivered,
there is no need to notify the iothread.
