Adding this kind of tests in fast path seems a big hammer to me.

See https://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=159903844423389&w=2   for a similar problem.

Normally, after hinic_close() operation, no packet should be sent by core networking stack.

Trying to work around some core networking issue in each driver is a dead end.
