From: Felipe Franciosi <felipe@nutanix.com>

QEMU must be careful when loading device state off migration streams to
prevent a malicious source from exploiting the emulator. Overdoing these
checks has the side effect of allowing a guest to "pin itself" in cloud
environments by messing with state which is entirely in its control.

Similarly to what f3081539 achieved in usb_device_post_load(), this
commit removes such a check from virtio_load(). Worth noting, the result
of a load without this check is the same as if a guest enables a VQ with
invalid indexes to begin with. That is, the virtual device is set in a
broken state (by the datapath handler) and must be reset.
