Commit Message

Prior to this commit, the maximum batch sizes for zero-copy and copy-mode
rx and copy-mode tx were set to 32. Apart from zero-copy tx, the user
could never rx/tx any more than 32 packets at a time and without inspecting
the code the user wouldn't be aware of this.

This commit removes these upper limits placed on the user and instead
sets an internal batch size equal to the default ring size (2048). Batches
larger than this are still processed, however they are split into smaller
batches similar to how it's done in other drivers. This is necessary
because some arrays used during rx/tx need to be sized at compile-time.

Allowing a larger batch size allows for fewer batches and thus larger bulk
operations, fewer ring accesses and fewer syscalls which should yield
improved performance.

Just to double check, can there be a library version that these macros not 
defined, should it be checked?

There can't be a library version with AF_XDP support without these macros, as they've been around since the very beginning:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=1cad078842396
We only build the PMD if xsk.h is available, and since these macros have been in the file since it has existed, we're safe.
