We take these steps:

1. Check to make sure we have enough rings, MSIX, other resources
first.  If we don't have enough resources, ndo_xdp() will return error
code.  Device is still up.
2. We then call firmware to reserve the rings.  If the firmware call
fails, ndo_xdp() will return error code.  Device is still up.
3. Now we close the device and open the device with additional rings.
Yeah, it is possible the open will fail, but it should be quite
unlikely.  In the event that it fails, the netdev will not be in an
inconsistent state.  It will be in the down state.
