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

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

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

commit 59ccb4ebbc35e36a3c143f2d1355deb75c2e628f upstream.

Tune xen_netbk_count_requests to not touch working array beyond limit, so that
we can make working array size constant.
