Here it is.

Subject: [PATCH] xen-netback: fix refcnt unbalance for 3.10

With the introduction of "xen-netback: Don't destroy the netdev until
the vif is shut down" (upstream commit id 279f438e36), vif disconnect
and free are separated. However in the backported version reference
counting code was not correctly modified, and the reset of vif->irq
was lost. If frontend goes through vif life cycle more than once the
reference counting is skewed.

This patch adds back the missing vif->irq reset line. It also moves
several lines of the reference counting code to vif_free, so the moved
code corresponds to the counterpart in vif_alloc, thus the reference
counting is balanced.
