Subject: [PATCH bpf-next v3 0/3] XDP flush cleanups

A couple updates to cleanup some of the XDP comments and rcu usage.

It would be best if patch 1/3 goes into current bpf-next with the
associated patch in the fixes tag so we don't have out of sync
comments in the code. Just noting because its close to time to close
{bpf|net}-next branches.

v2->v3: Jesper noticed I can't spell, so fixed spelling. If we
are fixing comments its best to have correct spelling.

v1->v2: Added 2/3 patch for virtio_net to use rcu_access_pointer
and avoid read_lock.

John Fastabend (3):
  bpf: xdp, update devmap comments to reflect napi/rcu usage
  bpf: xdp, virtio_net use access ptr macro for xdp enable check
  bpf: xdp, remove no longer required rcu_read_{un}lock()
