Subject: [PATCHv2 RFC 0/4] virtio and vhost-net capacity handling

OK, here's a new attempt to use the new capacity api.  I also added more
comments to clarify the logic.  Hope this is more readable.  Let me know
pls.

This is on top of the patches applied by Rusty.

Warning: untested. Posting now to give people chance to
comment on the API.

Changes from v1:
- fix comment in patch 2 to correct confusion noted by Rusty
- rewrite patch 3 along the lines suggested by Rusty
  note: it's not exactly the same but I hope it's close
  enough, the main difference is that mine does limited
  polling even in the unlikely xmit failure case.
- added a patch to not return capacity from add_buf
  it always looked like a weird hack

Michael S. Tsirkin (4):
  virtio_ring: add capacity check API
  virtio_net: fix tx capacity checks using new API
  virtio_net: limit xmit polling
  Revert "virtio: make add_buf return capacity remaining:
