netlink, mmap: don't walk rx ring on poll if receive queue non-empty
In case of netlink mmap, there can be situations where received frames have to be placed into the normal receive queue. The ring buffer indicates this through NL_MMAP_STATUS_COPY, so the user is asked to pick them up via recvmsg(2) syscall, and to put the slot back to NL_MMAP_STATUS_UNUSED. Commit 0ef707700f1c ("netlink: rx mmap: fix POLLIN condition") changed polling, so that we walk in the worst case the whole ring through the new netlink_has_valid_frame(), for example, when the ring would have no NL_MMAP_STATUS_VALID, but at least one NL_MMAP_STATUS_COPY frame. Since we do a datagram_poll() already earlier to pick up a mask that could possibly contain POLLIN | POLLRDNORM already (due to NL_MMAP_STATUS_COPY), we can skip checking the rx ring entirely. In case the kernel is compiled with !CONFIG_NETLINK_MMAP, then all this is irrelevant anyway as netlink_poll() is just defined as datagram_poll().
