I chose this spot for many reasons:

1. dev_map_enqueue has the bpf_dtab_netdev structure which holds the program

2. programs take xdp_buff, and dev_map_enqueue still has the xdp_buff
with the rx information; no need to convert from buff to frame losing rx
data, enqueue, back to buff to run program, back to frame to hand off to
the driver.

3. no sense enqueuing if the device program drops the frame.
