Subject: [PATCH] vhost: break out of polling loop on error

When ring parsing fails, we currently handle this
as ring empty condition. This means that we enable
kicks and recheck ring empty: if this not empty,
we re-start polling which of course will fail again.

Instead, let's return a negative error code and stop polling.

Dave, I'm sending this out so it can get reviewed.
I'll put this on my vhost tree
so no need for you to pick this patch directly.
