Subject: [PATCH net-next 1/6] net: skbuff: don't use union for napi_id and sender_cpu

We use a union for napi_id and send_cpu, this is ok for most of the
cases except when we want to support busy polling for tun which needs
napi_id to be stored and passed to socket during tun_net_xmit(). In
this case, napi_id was overridden with sender_cpu before tun_net_xmit()
was called if XPS was enabled. Fixing by not using union for napi_id
and sender_cpu.
