Subject: [PATCH] bpf: fix: address of local auto-variable assigned to a function parameter.

Assigning local variable txq to the outputting parameter xdp->txq is not
safe, txq will be released after the end of the function call. 
Then the result of using xdp is unpredictable.

Fix this error by defining the struct xdp_txq_info in function
dev_map_run_prog() as a static type.
