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

commit 46aa92d1ba162b4b3d6b7102440e459d4e4ee255 upstream.

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.
