In particular "cpsw" case no dma unmap issue and if no changes in page_pool
API then no changes to the driver required. page_pool_unmap_page() is
used here for consistency reasons with attention that it can be
inherited/reused by other SoCs for what it can be relevant.

One potential change as you mentioned is with dropping page_pool_destroy() that,
now, can look like:

@@ -571,7 +571,6 @@ static void cpsw_destroy_rx_pool(struct cpsw_priv *priv, int ch)

- page_pool_destroy(priv->page_pool[ch]);
priv->page_pool[ch] = NULL;

From what I know there is ongoing change for adding switchdev to cpsw that can
change a lot and can require more work to rebase / test this patchset, so I want
to believe it can be merged before this.
