That logic is still very non-obvious.

This code already had one bug because of an odd illegible test
sequence. Let's not keep the crazy code.

Why not just do the *obvious* thing, and get rid of "ret" entirely,
and make the damn thing return a boolean, and then just write it all
as

    /* Caller should have vq mutex and device mutex */
    bool vhost_vq_access_ok(struct vhost_virtqueue *vq)
    {
            if (!vq_log_access_ok(vq, vq->log_base))
                    return false;

            if (vq->iotlb || vq_access_ok(vq, vq->num, vq->desc,
vq->avail, vq->used);
    }

which makes the logic obvious: if vq_log_access_ok() fails, then then
vhost_vq_access_ok() fails unconditionally.

Otherwise, we need to have an iotlb, or a successful vq_access_ok() check.

Doesn't that all make more sense, and avoid the insane "ret" value use
that is really quite subtle?
