Subject[PATCH net-next v1 2/3] virtio_transport_common: Set sibling VMs flag on the receive path
The vsock flag can be set during the connect() setup logic, when
initializing the vsock address data structure variable. Then the vsock
transport is assigned, also considering this flag.

The vsock transport is also assigned on the (listen) receive path. The
flag needs to be set considering the use case.

Set the vsock flag of the remote address to the one targeted for sibling
VMs communication if the following conditions are met:

* The source CID of the packet is higher than VMADDR_CID_HOST.
* The destination CID of the packet is higher than VMADDR_CID_HOST.
