Before this series, we only read vvs->fwd_cnt and vvs->buf_alloc in this
function, but using a different lock than the one used to write them.
I'm not sure if a corruption can happen, but if we want to avoid the
lock, we should use an atomic operation or memory barriers.

Since now we also need to update vvs->last_fwd_cnt, in order to limit the
credit message, I decided to take the same lock used to protect vvs->fwd_cnt
and vvs->last_fwd_cnt.


Thanks,
Stefano
