Yes, we only need to ensure _kfree_skb_defer() runs with automic context.

And it seems NAPI polling can be in thread context with BH disabled in below
patch, so in_softirq() checking should be more future-proof?

* in_softirq()   - We have BH disabled, or are processing softirqs

Yes, that is good idea, _kfree_skb_defer() is only called in softirq or
BH disabled context, dev_consume_skb_any(skb) is called in other context,
so driver author do not need to worry about the calling context of the
napi_consume_skb().

Do you means something like below:
