Jason Wang - July 17, 2013, 10:32 a.m.
We try to linearize part of the skb when the number of iov is greater than
MAX_SKB_FRAGS. This is not enough since each single vector may occupy more than
one pages, so zerocopy_sg_fromiovec() may still fail and may break the guest
network.

Solve this problem by calculate the pages needed for iov before trying to do
zerocopy and switch to use copy instead of zerocopy if it needs more than
MAX_SKB_FRAGS.

This is done through introducing a new helper to count the pages for iov, and
call uarg->callback() manually when switching from zerocopy to copy to notify
vhost.

We can do further optimization on top.

The bug were introduced from commit 0690899b4d4501b3505be069b9a687e68ccbe15b
(tun: experimental zero copy tx support)
