    virtio-net: return with value in void function
    virtio-net has return with value in a void function.
    No idea why does it compile with gcc,
    but this isn't legal C.

    virtio: invoke set_features on load
    After migration, vhost was not getting features
    acked because set_features callback was never invoked.
    The fix is just to invoke that callback.
