Commit 762c330d670e ("tuntap: add missing xdp flush") tries to fix the
devmap stall caused by missed xdp flush by counting the pending xdp
redirected packets and flush when it exceeds NAPI_POLL_WEIGHT or
MSG_MORE is clear. This may lead to BUG() since xdp_do_flush() was
called in the process context with preemption enabled. Simply
disabling preemption may silence the warning but be not enough since
process may move between different CPUS during a batch which cause
xdp_do_flush() misses some CPU where the process run
previously. Consider the fallouts, that commit was reverted. To fix
the issue correctly, we can simply call xdp_do_flush() immediately
after xdp_do_redirect(), a side effect is that this removes any
possibility of batching which could be addressed in the future.
