Looks fine to me, the Linux backend is also prepared to handle it
without any modifications. As I said in the last version, I would add
the following to the commit message:

This change implies we can now have 32*128+32 = 4128 in-flight grants,
which greatly surpasses the default amount of persistent grants blkback
can handle, so the LRU in blkback will kick in.
