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

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

From: Jason Wang <jasowang@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit ece793fcfc417b3925844be88a6a6dc82ae8f7c6 ]

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.

This bug were introduced from b92946e2919134ebe2a4083e4302236295ea2a73
(macvtap: zerocopy: validate vectors before building skb).
