Subject[PATCH] virtio: fix oops on OOM
Date
From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <mst@redhat.com>

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.
