Inside Macro ASSIGN_UNLESS_EQUAL(var, val), assignment to var is always
failing as assignment done using var_ having local scope only.
This leads to TX packets not going out and found broken due to cleanup
malfunctioning. This patch fixes the wrong variable assignment.

Fixes: 57f90f894588 ("net/virtio: reuse packed ring functions")
