In order to avoid a malicious backend being able to influence the local
processing of a request build the request locally first and then copy
it to the ring page. Any reading from the request needs to be done on
the local instance.

"Any reading" isn't really true - you don't change xennet_make_one_txreq(),
yet that has a read-modify-write operation. Without that I would have
been inclined to ask whether ...

... retaining the tx field here is a good idea.

Similarly this returning of a pointer into the ring looks at least
risky to me. At the very least it looks as if ...

... you could avoid setting tx here; perhaps the local variable
could go away altogether, showing it's really just first_rx that
is still needed. It's odd that ...

... you don't change this one, when ...

... you do so here. Likely just an oversight.
