Commit Message

Zhou, YidingX Aug. 25, 2022, 6:27 a.m. UTC
The pcap file will be synchronized to the disk when stopping the device.
It takes a long time if the file is large that would cause the
'detach sync request' timeout when the device is closed under multi-process
scenario.

This commit fixes the issue by performing synchronization in Tx path

Fixes: 4c173302c307 ("pcap: add new driver")
