Hm. How close is the xdp generic code to veth?
I wonder if it'd make sense to create a page pool instance for each
core, we could then pass it into a common "reallocate skb into a
page-pool backed, fragged form" helper. Common between this code
and veth? Perhaps we could even get rid of the veth page pools
and use the per cpu pools there?
