> 
> refcount of rx_buffer page will be added here originally, so prefetchw
> is needed, but after commit 1793668c3b8c ("i40e/i40evf: Update code to
>  better handle incrementing page count"), and refcount is not added
> everytime, so change prefetchw as prefetch,
> 
> now it mainly services page_address(), but which accesses struct page
> only when WANT_PAGE_VIRTUAL or HASHED_PAGE_VIRTUAL is defined
> otherwise
> it returns address based on offset, so we prefetch it conditionally
> 
> Jakub suggested to define prefetch_page_address in a common header
> 
> Suggested-by: Jakub Kicinski <kuba@...nel.org>
