It should work because fetch_buf fetches a whole buf, following
the chain. Seems to work in a small test ... what issues do you see?

This can't happen: descriptors are pushed by push_split_desc each time
we go through a loop in fetch_buf. The only way to exit the loop
with return code 0 is if next_desc return -1 that is when VRING_DESC_F_NEXT
is clear.

But it's a good idea to add a BUG_ON here, I'll do it in the next version.
