    This patch introduces grant mapping on netback TX path. It replaces grant copy
    operations, ditching grant copy coalescing along the way. Another solution for
    copy coalescing is introduced in "xen-netback: Handle guests with too many
    frags", older guests and Windows can broke before that patch applies.
    There is a callback (xenvif_zerocopy_callback) from core stack to release the
    slots back to the guests when kfree_skb or skb_orphan_frags called. It feeds a
    separate dealloc thread, as scheduling NAPI instance from there is inefficient,
    therefore we can't do dealloc from the instance.
