virtio: support reserved vqs
virtio network device multiqueue support reserves vq 3 for future use (useful both for future extensions and to make it pretty - this way receive vqs have even and transmit - odd numbers). Make it possible to skip initialization for specific vq numbers by specifying NULL for name. Document this usage as well as (existing) NULL callback. Drivers using this not coded up yet, so I simply tested with virtio-pci and verified that this patch does not break existing drivers. Signed-off-by: Michael S.
