Subject: [PATCH net] virtio-net: add a missing synchronize_net()

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

It seems many drivers do not respect napi_hash_del() contract.

When napi_hash_del() is used before netif_napi_del(), an RCU grace
period is needed before freeing NAPI object.

Fixes: 91815639d880 ("virtio-net: rx busy polling support")
