I think it's a real bug, but I don't see how the fix
makes sense.
We are returning an error, so we ideally
revert to the state before the faulty
operation. So this should put sock and ubufs,
not oldsock/oldubufs.


The best way is probably to change
vhost_init_used so that it gets private data
pointer as a parameter.

We can then call it before ubuf alloc.
You can then add err_used right after err_ubufs
with no extra logic.
