Subject: [PATCH 06/12] xen: make use of xenbus_read_unsigned() in xen-netback

Use xenbus_read_unsigned() instead of xenbus_scanf() when possible.
This requires to change the type of some reads from int to unsigned,
but these cases have been wrong before: negative values are not allowed
for the modified cases.
