This is very AF_XDP specific.  I think that the cpumap could likely
benefit from similar approach? e.g. if the cpumap kthread is scheduled
on the same CPU.

But for cpumap we only want this behavior if sched on the same CPU as
RX-NAPI.  This could be "seen" by the cpumap code itself in the case
bq_flush_to_queue() drops packets, check if rcpu->cpu equal
smp_processor_id().  Maybe I'm taking this too far?
