Subject: [PATCH] net: ag71xx: switch to napi_build_skb() to reuse skbuff_heads

napi_build_skb() reuses NAPI skbuff_head cache in order to save some
cycles on freeing/allocating skbuff_heads on every new Rx or completed
Tx.
Use napi_consume_skb() to feed the cache with skbuff_heads of completed
Tx, so it's never empty.
