[Xen-devel] [PATCH v2] xen-blkfront: fix kernel panic with negotiate_mq error path

info->nr_rings isn't adjusted in case of ENOMEM error from
negotiate_mq(). This leads to kernel panic in error path.

Typical call stack involving panic -
 #8 page_fault at ffffffff8175936f
    [exception RIP: blkif_free_ring+33]
    RIP: ffffffffa0149491  RSP: ffff8804f7673c08  RFLAGS: 00010292
 #9 blkif_free at ffffffffa0149aaa [xen_blkfront]
 #10 talk_to_blkback at ffffffffa014c8cd [xen_blkfront]
