Please add a comment describing the purpose of this struct and to
differentiate its use from struct virtio_vsock_pkt.

buf and buf->addr could be allocated in a single call, though I'm not
sure how big an optimization this is.

The return value of this function isn't used but the code still makes an
effort to return errors.  Please return -ENOMEM when buf == NULL.

If you'd like to remove the return value that's fine too, but please do
it for the whole function to be consistent.
