I haven't been able to reproduce this, but I think it's possible that if you 
migrate an active netfront xn_txq_mq_start might be called during the 
migration, just in the middle of the setup_device reconfiguation (while 
info->num_queues is 0).

Wei, I think netif_disconnect_backend should set IFF_DRV_OACTIVE in order to 
notify the net subsystem that the queues are full, so no further calls to 
xn_txq_mq_start happen until the resume has finished, do you agree?
