I understand now. Your patch makes sense. But your commit title/msg is still
wrong. An example commit message should be (you could use this):

net/virtio: fix wrong variable assignment in helper macro

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.
