[106/205] virtio: fix oops on OOM

2.6.34-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Michael S. Tsirkin <mst@xxxxxxxxxx>

commit 1fe9b6fef11771461e69ecd1bc8935a1c7c90cb5 upstream.

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.
