Subject: [PATCH net 3/3] xen-netback: BUG_ON in xenvif_rx_action() not catching overflow

The BUG_ON to catch ring overflow in xenvif_rx_action() makes the assumption
that meta_slots_used == ring slots used. This is not the case for GSO
packets. This patch changes the test to actually check ring slots.
