As often as we respond to the previous NIC_RX_FILTER_CHANGED event -
qemu won't send another event until we've issued a new query-rx-filter
command for that same interface. So for domains where we've set
trustGuestRxFilters='no', we will get exactly one event per interface.
On domains where we trust the guest enough to use its filter info, we
will never get a backlog of more than one per interface.

If NIC_RX_FILTER_CHANGED exists, then query-rx-filter exists. If
NIC_RX_FILTER_CHANGED doesn't exist, we will never get to this point.

No, you're not missing anything. All the other information will be used
in the future in a similar manner. This single patch was all that was
necessary to get regular unicast traffic working after a mac address
change, so it is useful on its own, but I didn't want to add in the
utility functions half-finished.
