[PATCH] virtio: fix oops on OOM

From: Rusty Russell
Date: Mon Jul 26 2010 - 03:25:47 EST

From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <mst@xxxxxxxxxx>

virtio ring was changed to return an error code on OOM,
but one caller was missed and still checks for vq->vring.num.
The fix is just to check for <0 error code.

Long term it might make sense to change goto add_head to
just return an error on oom instead, but let's apply
a minimal fix for 2.6.35.
