At least not for current code. We don't support skb in cpumap (though 
the fix should not be hard), in dp_do_generic_redirect_map() we had:

         } else {
                 /* TODO: Handle BPF_MAP_TYPE_CPUMAP */
                 err = -EBADRQC;
                 goto err;
         }

At lest for TUN, this is not true. XDP frames were built by vhost_net 
and passed to TUN. There's no guarantee that vhost_net kthread won't 
move to another core.
