parentxen: Add RING_COPY_REQUEST() (diff)
xen-netback: don't use last request to determine minimum Tx credit
The last from guest transmitted request gives no indication about the minimum amount of credit that the guest might need to send a packet since the last packet might have been a small one. Instead allow for the worst case 128 KiB packet. This is part of XSA155.
