Subject: [PATCH net-next v9 0/2] xen networking: add XDP support to xen-netfront

This series adds XDP support to xen-nefront driver.
The second patch enables extra space for XDP processing.

- assign an xdp program before switching to Reconfiguring
- minor cleanups
- address checkpatch issues

- add PAGE_POOL config dependency
- keep the state of XDP processing in netfront_xdp_enabled
- fixed allocator type in xdp_rxq_info_reg_mem_model()
- minor cleanups in xen-netback

- use page_pool_dev_alloc_pages() on page allocation
- remove the leftover break statement from netback_changed

- added the missing SOB line
- fixed subject

- split netfront/netback changes
- added a sync point between backend/frontend on switching to XDP
- added pagepool API

- added verbose patch descriprion
- don't expose the XDP headroom offset to the domU guest
- add a modparam to netback to toggle XDP offset
- don't process jumbo frames for now

- added XDP_TX support (tested with xdping echoserver)
- added XDP_REDIRECT support (tested with modified xdp_redirect_kern)
- moved xdp negotiation to xen-netback

- avoid data copying while passing to XDP
- tell xen-netback that we need the headroom space

Denis Kirjanov (2):
  xen networking: add basic XDP support for xen-netfront
  xen networking: add XDP offset adjustment to xen-netback
