Use the new recycling API for page_pool.
In a drop rate test, the packet rate is more than doubled,
from 962 Kpps to 2047 Kpps.

perf top on a stock system shows:

Overhead  Shared Object     Symbol
  30.67%  [kernel]          [k] page_pool_release_page
   8.37%  [kernel]          [k] get_page_from_freelist
   7.34%  [kernel]          [k] free_unref_page
   6.47%  [mvpp2]           [k] mvpp2_rx
   4.69%  [kernel]          [k] eth_type_trans
   4.55%  [kernel]          [k] __netif_receive_skb_core
   4.40%  [kernel]          [k] build_skb
   4.29%  [kernel]          [k] kmem_cache_free
   4.00%  [kernel]          [k] kmem_cache_alloc
   3.81%  [kernel]          [k] dev_gro_receive

With packet rate stable at 962 Kpps:

tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 477.4 Mbps 962.6 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 477.6 Mbps 962.8 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 477.6 Mbps 962.9 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 477.2 Mbps 962.1 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 477.5 Mbps 962.7 Kpps

And this is the same output with recycling enabled:

Overhead  Shared Object     Symbol
  12.75%  [mvpp2]           [k] mvpp2_rx
   9.56%  [kernel]          [k] __netif_receive_skb_core
   9.29%  [kernel]          [k] build_skb
   9.27%  [kernel]          [k] eth_type_trans
   8.39%  [kernel]          [k] kmem_cache_alloc
   7.85%  [kernel]          [k] kmem_cache_free
   7.36%  [kernel]          [k] page_pool_put_page
   6.45%  [kernel]          [k] dev_gro_receive
   4.72%  [kernel]          [k] __xdp_return
   3.06%  [kernel]          [k] page_pool_refill_alloc_cache

With packet rate above 2000 Kpps:

tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 1015 Mbps 2046 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 1015 Mbps 2047 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 1015 Mbps 2047 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 1015 Mbps 2047 Kpps
tx: 0 bps 0 pps rx: 1015 Mbps 2047 Kpps

The major performance increase is explained by the fact that the most CPU
consuming functions (page_pool_release_page, get_page_from_freelist
and free_unref_page) are no longer called on a per packet basis.

The test was done by sending to the macchiatobin 64 byte ethernet frames
with an invalid ethertype, so the packets are dropped early in the RX path.
