If you are using the Note: directive the text needs to be separated by a
blank line and also indented. Otherwise it throws a doc build warning.
I'd suggest something like this with some minor changes to the text
Virtio PMD already has support for receiving lsc from qemu when the link
status changes, especially when vhost user disconnects. However, it fails
to do that if the VM is created by qemu 2.6.2 or below, since the
capability to detect vhost user disconnection is introduced in qemu 2.7.0.
