It looks to me then we miss the failure feedback.

The issues comes from the inconsistent error handling in tun.

I wonder whether we can simply do uarg->callback(uarg, false) if 
necessary on every failture path on tun_get_user().

Note that, zerocopy has a lot of issues which makes it not good for 
production environment.

Thanks
