This series tries to implement rx batching for vhost-net. This is done
by batching the dequeuing from skb_array which was exported by
underlayer socket and pass the sbk back through msg_control to finish
userspace copying. This is also the requirement for more batching
implemention on rx path.

Tests shows at most 8.8% improvment bon rx pps on top of batch zeroing.

Please review.


Changes from V2:
- rebase to net-next HEAD
- use unconsume helpers to put skb back on releasing
- introduce and use vhost_net internal buffer helpers
- renew performance numbers on top of batch zeroing

Changes from V1:
- switch to use for() in __ptr_ring_consume_batched()
- rename peek_head_len_batched() to fetch_skbs()
- use skb_array_consume_batched() instead of
  skb_array_consume_batched_bh() since no consumer run in bh
- drop the lockless peeking patch since skb_array could be resized, so
  it's not safe to call lockless one

  skb_array: introduce skb_array_unconsume
  ptr_ring: introduce batch dequeuing
  skb_array: introduce batch dequeuing
  tun: export skb_array
  tap: export skb_array
  tun: support receiving skb through msg_control
  tap: support receiving skb from msg_control
  vhost_net: try batch dequing from skb array
