4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Jason Wang <jasow...@redhat.com>

[ Upstream commit 1bb4f2e868a2891ab8bc668b8173d6ccb8c4ce6f ]

We don't flush batched XDP packets through xdp_do_flush_map(), this
will cause packets stall at TX queue. Consider we don't do XDP on NAPI
poll(), the only possible fix is to call xdp_do_flush_map()
immediately after xdp_do_redirect().

Note, this in fact won't try to batch packets through devmap, we could
address in the future.
