Subject: [net-next PATCH V2 1/3] net: bulk free infrastructure for NAPI
 context, use napi_consume_skb

Discovered that network stack were hitting the kmem_cache/SLUB
slowpath when freeing SKBs.  Doing bulk free with kmem_cache_free_bulk
can speedup this slowpath.

NAPI context is a bit special, lets take advantage of that for bulk
free'ing SKBs.

In NAPI context we are running in softirq, which gives us certain
protection.  A softirq can run on several CPUs at once.  BUT the
important part is a softirq will never preempt another softirq running
on the same CPU.  This gives us the opportunity to access per-cpu
variables in softirq context.

Extend napi_alloc_cache (before only contained page_frag_cache) to be
a struct with a small array based stack for holding SKBs.  Introduce a
SKB defer and flush API for accessing this.

Introduce napi_consume_skb() as replacement for e.g. dev_consume_skb_any()
when running in NAPI context.  A small trick to handle/detect if we
are called from netpoll is to see if budget is 0.  In that case, we
need to invoke dev_consume_skb_irq().

Joint work with Alexander Duyck.
