The driver compares "vb->cmd_id_use != vb->cmd_id_received" to decide if it 
needs to stop reporting hints, and cmd_id_received is what the driver reads 
from host (host notifies the driver to read for the latest value). If host 
sends a new cmd id, it will notify the guest to read again. I'm not sure how 
that could be a stale cmd id (or maybe I misunderstood your point here?)

Best,
Wei
