ixgbe: Fix NULL pointer dereference in ixgbe_xdp_setup

Description

In the Linux kernel, the following vulnerability has been resolved: ixgbe: Fix NULL pointer dereference in ixgbe_xdp_setup The ixgbe driver currently generates a NULL pointer dereference with some machine (online cpus < 63). This is due to the fact that the maximum value of num_xdp_queues is nr_cpu_ids. Code is in "ixgbe_set_rss_queues"". Here's how the problem repeats itself: Some machine (online cpus < 63), And user set num_queues to 63 through ethtool. Code is in the "ixgbe_set_channels", adapter->ring_feature[RING_F_FDIR].limit = count; It becomes 63. When user use xdp, "ixgbe_set_rss_queues" will set queues num. adapter->num_rx_queues = rss_i; adapter->num_tx_queues = rss_i; adapter->num_xdp_queues = ixgbe_xdp_queues(adapter); And rss_i's value is from f = &adapter->ring_feature[RING_F_FDIR]; rss_i = f->indices = f->limit; So "num_rx_queues" > "num_xdp_queues", when run to "ixgbe_xdp_setup", for (i = 0; i < adapter->num_rx_queues; i++) if (adapter->xdp_ring[i]->xsk_umem) It leads to panic.

And when run to ixgbe_xdp_setup, take the smaller value of num_rx_queues and num_xdp_queues.
