Similar as your description, 

but the xdp program only redirects vxlan packets to af_xdp socket, other packets will go to Linux kernel networking stack, like scp/ssh packets

We use 4k page size, page flipping is 4k, we did not change the i40e drivers, 4.19 stable kernel

Like:

First skb will be into tcp socket rx queue

Seconds skb is vxlan packet, will be copy to af_xdp socket, and released.

True, it is broken for copy mode xsk
