vq->inuse must be zeroed upon device reset like most other virtqueue
fields.

In theory, virtio_reset() just needs assert(vq->inuse == 0) since
devices must clean up in-flight requests during reset (requests cannot
not be leaked!).

In practice, it is difficult to achieve vq->inuse == 0 across reset
because balloon, blk, 9p, etc implement various different strategies for
cleaning up requests.  Most devices call g_free(elem) directly without
telling virtio.c that the VirtQueueElement is cleaned up.  Therefore
vq->inuse is not decremented during reset.

This patch zeroes vq->inuse and trusts that devices are not leaking
VirtQueueElements across reset.

I will send a follow-up series that refactors request life-cycle across
all devices and converts vq->inuse = 0 into assert(vq->inuse == 0) but
this more invasive approach is not appropriate for stable trees.
