3.5.7.15 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Wei Liu <wei.liu2@citrix.com>

commit 9ecd1a75d977e2e8c48139c7d3efed183f898d94 upstream.

The maximum packet including header that can be handled by netfront / netback
wire format is 65535. Reduce gso_max_size accordingly.

Drop skb and print warning when skb->len > 65535. This can 1) save the effort
to send malformed packet to netback, 2) help spotting misconfiguration of
netfront in the future.
