The word "detach" is not defined or used in the spec, so it's unclear
what this is supposed to mean.  Is this related to a control message

How about:

  The device MUST NOT use buffers after it has sent
  VIRTIO_CONSOLE_PORT_OPEN with value=0 for a port.

I'm not sure what you mean by "take buffers out of the device"?  I guess
you mean the driver can modify the vring because the device isn't
