[PATCH net-next 6/9] igb: switch to napi_build_skb()

From: Alexander Lobakin
Date: Tue Nov 23 2021 - 12:24:55 EST

napi_build_skb() reuses per-cpu NAPI skbuff_head cache in order
to save some cycles on freeing/allocating skbuff_heads on every
new Rx or completed Tx.
igb driver runs Tx completion polling cycle right before the Rx
one and uses napi_consume_skb() to feed the cache with skbuff_heads
of completed entries, so it's never empty and always warm at that
moment. Switch to the napi_build_skb() to relax mm pressure on
heavy Rx.
