CVS commit: src/sys/arch/xen/xen

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   jdolecek
Date:           Sun Apr  5 17:26:47 UTC 2020

Modified Files:
        src/sys/arch/xen/xen: if_xennet_xenbus.c xennetback_xenbus.c

Log Message:
remove support for legacy rx-flip mode for xennet(4)/xvif(4), making
rx-copy (first shipped in NetBSD 6.0 in 2012) the only supported

this is mostly to simplify maintenance and future development

rx-flip is not supported by Linux Dom0/DomU, and NetBSD Dom0/DomU
defaults to rx-copy for over 8 years now too, so there is little
need to keep the support for compatibility

besides compatibility there is no other reason to keep rx-flip -
page transfer is generally slower than copy due to necessary MMU/TLB
manipulation, especially on MP systems
