Subject: [PATCH 4.4 068/230] xen-netback: fix occasional leak of grant ref mappings under memory pressure

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Igor Druzhinin <igor.druzhinin@...rix.com>

[ Upstream commit 99e87f56b48f490fb16b6e0f74691c1e664dea95 ]

Zero-copy callback flag is not yet set on frag list skb at the moment
xenvif_handle_frag_list() returns -ENOMEM. This eventually results in
leaking grant ref mappings since xenvif_zerocopy_callback() is never
called for these fragments. Those eventually build up and cause Xen
to kill Dom0 as the slots get reused for new mappings:

"d0v0 Attempt to implicitly unmap a granted PTE c010000329fce005"

That behavior is observed under certain workloads where sudden spikes
of page cache writes coexist with active atomic skb allocations from
network traffic. Additionally, rework the logic to deal with frag_list
deallocation in a single place.
