VIRTIO devices report the maximum supported queue size via
transport-specific means (e.g. virtio-pci's struct
virtio_pci_common_cfg->queue_size field). QEMU's -device
virtio-*,queue-size= sets this field.

The driver can reduce the queue size from that maximum, if desired.

Since this mechanism is already present I don't think anything
additional is needed in the virtiofs device specification.
