Subject: [PATCH net-next RFC 4/4] virtio-net: clean tx descriptors from rx napi

From: Willem de Bruijn <willemb@...gle.com>

Amortize the cost of virtual interrupts by doing both rx and tx work
on reception of a receive interrupt. Together VIRTIO_F_EVENT_IDX and
vhost interrupt moderation, this suppresses most explicit tx
completion interrupts for bidirectional workloads.
