Subject: [PATCH bpf-next] xsk: fix possible segfault at xskmap entry insertion

Fix possible segfault when entry is inserted into xskmap. This can
happen if the socket is in a state where the umem has been set up, the
Rx ring created but it has yet to be bound to a device. In this case
the pool has not yet been created and we cannot reference it for the
existence of the fill ring. Fix this by removing the whole
xsk_is_setup_for_bpf_map function. Once upon a time, it was used to
make sure that the Rx and fill rings where set up before the driver
could call xsk_rcv, since there are no tests for the existence of
these rings in the data path. But these days, we have a state variable
that we test instead. When it is XSK_BOUND, everything has been set up
correctly and the socket has been bound. So no reason to have the
xsk_is_setup_for_bpf_map function anymore.
