Subject: [PATCH] virtio_console:Free buffers from out-queue upon close
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

Free pending output buffers from the virtio out-queue when
host has acknowledged port_close. Also removed WARN_ON()
in remove_port_data().

Hi Amit,

Note: This patch is compile tested only. I have done the removal
of buffers from out-queue in handle_control_message()
when host has acked the close request. This seems less
racy than doing it in the release function.

I you want to change this further, feel free to take over from
here and refine this.

Thanks,
Sjur
