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]
 #11 blkback_changed at ffffffffa014ea8b [xen_blkfront]
 #12 xenbus_otherend_changed at ffffffff81424670
 #13 backend_changed at ffffffff81426dc3
 #14 xenwatch_thread at ffffffff81422f29
 #15 kthread at ffffffff810abe6a
 #16 ret_from_fork at ffffffff81754078

Though either of my changes avoid the panic, I included both the
changes. This issue got introduced with "7ed8ce1 xen-blkfront: move
negotiate_mq to cover all cases of new VBDs"
