    After the patch, tap1 is able to flood tap2, and tap3/tap4 not able to
    send one single frame. Is it OK ?

    Back to the problem : tap1 cannot be closed.

    Why ? because of refcounts ?

    When a socket with inflight tx packets is closed, we dont block the
    close, we only delay the socket freeing once all packets were delivered
    and freed.
