lguest: fix descriptor corruption in example launcher
Rusty Russell [Thu, 30 Jul 2009 22:03:43 +0000 (16:03 -0600)]
1d589bb16b825b3a7b4edd34d997f1f1f953033d "Add serial number support
for virtio_blk, V4a" extended 'struct virtio_blk_config' to 536 bytes.
Lguest and S/390 both use an 8 bit value for the feature length, and
this change broke them (if the code is naive).
