net: Add net_dev_start_xmit trace event, exposing more skb fields
The existing net/net_dev_xmit trace event provides little information about the skb that has been passed to the driver, and it is not simple to add more since the skb may already have been freed at the point the event is emitted. Add a separate trace event before the skb is passed to the driver, including most fields that are likely to be interesting for debugging driver datapath behaviour.
