When link is down, writes to the device might fail with
-EIO. Userspace needs an indication when the status is resolved.  As a
fix, tun_net_open() attempts to wake up writers - but that is only
effective if SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE has been set in the past. This is
not the case of vhost_net which only poll for EPOLLOUT after it meets
errors during sendmsg().

This patch fixes this by making sure SOCKWQ_ASYNC_NOSPACE is set when
socket is not writable or device is down to guarantee EPOLLOUT will be
raised in either tun_chr_poll() or tun_sock_write_space() after device
is up.

Applied and queued up for -stable, thanks Jason.
