virtio declares support for NETIF_F_FRAGLIST, but assumes
that there are at most MAX_SKB_FRAGS + 2 fragments which isn't
always true with a fraglist.

A longer fraglist in the skb will make the call to skb_to_sgvec overflow
the sg array, leading to memory corruption.

Drop NETIF_F_FRAGLIST so we only get what we can handle.

- Change from V1: coding style fixes.
- The patch is needed for stable.

I noticed only now that this didn't Cc Dave, so of course it's
not applied. I'm preparing a pull request anyway, so
I'll merge this through my tree, and add Cc stable.
Dave - ok with you?

CC:'ing me isn't the requirement. CC:'ing netdev is, which he
did.  If you check patchwork, it's there in the queue.

I'm just behind and heavily backlogged because I've been working
on other things.
