This looks very complicated to me.

I guess you missed the recent patches that happened on net-next ?

2e713283751f494596655d9125c168aeb913f71d net/mlx4_en: use napi_complete_done() return value
364b6055738b4c752c30ccaaf25c624e69d76195 net: busy-poll: return busypolling status to drivers
21cb84c48ca0619181106f0f44f3802a989de024 net: busy-poll: remove need_resched() from sk_can_busy_loop()
217f6974368188fd8bd7804bf5a036aa5762c5e4 net: busy-poll: allow preemption in sk_busy_loop()

napi_complete_done() return code can be used by a driver,
no need to add yet another atomic operation in fast path.

Anyway, this looks wrong :

@@ -1186,6 +1201,7 @@ static irqreturn_t ena_intr_msix_io(int irq, void *data)
struct ena_napi *ena_napi = data;

+ atomic_set(&ena_napi->unmask_interrupt, 1);

You probably wanted :

if (napi_schedule_prep(n)) {
atomic_set(&ena_napi->unmask_interrupt, 1);

Please rework this napi poll using core infrastructure.

busypoll logic should be centralized, not reimplemented in different ways in a driver.
