[PATCH net] vhost/net: fix heads usage of ubuf_info

From: Michael S. Tsirkin
Date: Sun Mar 17 2013 - 08:46:21 EST

ubuf info allocator uses guest controlled head as an index,
so a malicious guest could put the same head entry in the ring twice,
and we will get two callbacks on the same value.
To fix use upend_idx which is guaranteed to be unique.

Rusty's working on switching to allocating ubufs dynamically
but that's not 3.9 material.
This patch is against latest net master,
needed for 3.9-rc2 and older kernels.
