Subject: [PATCH net 1/9] virtio-net: remove the warning before XDP linearizing

Since we use EWMA to estimate the size of rx buffer. When rx buffer
size is underestimated, it's usual to have a packet with more than one
buffers. Consider this is not a bug, remove the warning and correct
the comment before XDP linearizing.
