Patch 2 you set dev but don't hold a refcnt on it which is why you need
the locking here. How do you know that the dev pointer is even valid here?

If xdp_link is going to have dev reference you need to take the refcnt
and you need to handle NETDEV notifications to cleanup the bpf_link when
the device goes away.
