Subject[PATCH] 9p/trans_virtio: discard zero-length reply
When a 9p request is successfully flushed, the server is expected to just
mark it as used without sending a 9p reply (ie, without writing data into
the buffer). In this case, virtqueue_get_buf() will return len == 0 and
we must not report a REQ_STATUS_RCVD status to the client, otherwise the
client will erroneously assume the request has not been flushed.
