i40e: fix XDP_REDIRECT/XDP xmit ring cleanup race [Linux 5.0]

This Linux kernel change "i40e: fix XDP_REDIRECT/XDP xmit ring cleanup race" is included in the Linux 5.0 release. This change is authored by Björn Töpel <bjorn.topel [at] intel.com> on Thu Feb 14 14:03:02 2019 +0100. The commit for this change in Linux stable tree is 59eb2a8 (patch).

i40e: fix XDP_REDIRECT/XDP xmit ring cleanup race

When the driver clears the XDP xmit ring due to re-configuration or
teardown, in-progress ndo_xdp_xmit must be taken into consideration.

The ndo_xdp_xmit function is typically called from a NAPI context that
the driver does not control. Therefore, we must be careful not to
clear the XDP ring, while the call is on-going. This patch adds a
synchronize_rcu() to wait for napi(s) (preempt-disable regions and
softirqs), prior clearing the queue. Further, the __I40E_CONFIG_BUSY
flag is checked in the ndo_xdp_xmit implementation to avoid touching
the XDP xmit queue during re-configuration.

Fixes: 123cecd427b6 ("i40e: added queue pair disable/enable functions")
