Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: add in_softirq() debug checking in napi_consume_skb()

The current semantic for napi_consume_skb() is that caller need
to provide non-zero budget when calling from NAPI context, and
breaking this semantic will cause hard to debug problem, because
_kfree_skb_defer() need to run in atomic context in order to push
the skb to the particular cpu' napi_alloc_cache atomically.

So add a in_softirq() debug checking in napi_consume_skb() to catch
this kind of error.
