Hi all:

This series tries to implement XDP support for tap. Two path were

- fast path: small & non-gso packet, For performance reason we do it
  at page level and use build_skb() to create skb if necessary.
- slow path: big or gso packet, we don't want to lose the capability
  compared to generic XDP, so we export some generic xdp helpers and
  do it after skb was created.

xdp1 shows about 47% improvement.

Please review.

  tap: use build_skb() for small packet
  net: export some generic xdp helpers
  tap: XDP support
