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

From: Jason Wang <jasowang@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 4364d5f96eed7994a2c625bd9216656e55fba0cb ]

When we decide not use zero-copy, msg.control should be set to NULL otherwise
macvtap/tap may set zerocopy callbacks which may decrease the kref of ubufs
wrongly.

Bug were introduced by commit cedb9bdce099206290a2bdd02ce47a7b253b6a84
(vhost-net: skip head management if no outstanding).

This solves the following warnings:
