Subject: [PATCH][bpf-next][v2] bpf: return -EBADRQC for invalid map type in __bpf_tx_xdp_map

a negative value should be returned if map->map_type
is invalid although that seems unlikely now, then the
caller will continue to handle buffer, otherwise the
buffer will be leaked

Daniel Borkmann suggested:
-EBADRQC should be returned to keep consistent with
xdp_do_generic_redirect_map() for the tracepoint output
and not to be confused with -EOPNOTSUPP from other
locations like dev_map_enqueue() when ndo_xdp_xmit
is missing or such.
