[PATCH 4.9 096/171] nbd: only set MSG_MORE when we have more to send




4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

[ Upstream commit d61b7f972dab2a7d187c38254845546dfc8eed85 ]

A user noticed that write performance was horrible over loopback and we
traced it to an inversion of when we need to set MSG_MORE.  It should be
set when we have more bvec's to send, not when we are on the last bvec.
This patch made the test go from 20 iops to 78k iops.
