Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: add
 netdev_txq_bql_{enqueue,complete}_prefetchw() helpers

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

Add two helpers so that drivers do not have to care of BQL being
available or not.

Signed-off-by: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>
Reported-by: Jim Davis <jim.epost@...il.com>
Fixes: 29d40c903247 ("net/mlx4_en: Use prefetch in tx path")
