Indeed, and I hope we can get rid off them one day.

I think we can get rid off rte_eth_vhost_get_queue_event easily.
Maybe we can even just drop it if we implement the new ethdev ops.

It is anyway too late for v19.08, as the proposal deadline is over 3
weeks now. I will only accept fixes or small patches that have limited
impact.

Here, the patch is adding a new API, which is significant.
And with the new API stability rules that is being put in place, it may
imply that we'll need to support it for more than 2 years.

So for v19.11, if you think you don't have the bandwidth, maybe I can
try to do it. I really prefer that than having an API already deprecated
when merged in master.

Thanks,
Maxime
