Your observation is a queue-wrap condition that makes it impossible for
the controller know there are new commands.

Your patch does look like the correct thing to do. The "zero means one"
thing is a confusing distraction, I think. It makes more sense if you
consider sqsize as the maximum number of tags we can have outstanding at
one time and it looks like all the drivers set it that way. We're
supposed to leave one slot empty for a full NVMe queue, so adding one
here to report the total number slots isn't right since that would allow
us to fill all slots.

Fabrics drivers have been using this method for a while, though, so
interesting they haven't had a simiar problem.
