To be more friendly with drop monitor, we should only call kfree_skb() when
the packets were dropped and use consume_skb() in other cases.

Changes from V2:
- use unlikely() when necessary
Changes from V1:
- check the return value of tun/macvtap_put_user()

This does not apply cleanly to net-next and will thus need to
be respun, thanks.

Will post V3.
