Originally napi_add was in init_queue and napi_del was in deinit_queue,

Why have you added an additional loop over all the queues?  The ordering
looks wrong as well.  I think you want

    1. unbind from irqhandler
    2. napi del
    3. stop task
    4. stop dealloc task
    5. unmap frontend rings.
And that's how they are ordered.

No, it isn't.  Did you mistakenly look at netfront which is correctly
ordered already?

You must unbind the irq handler before calling netif_napi_del() or an
interrupt may occur and the handler may call napi_schedule() with a
deleted instance.
I think xenvif_carrier_off (which call xenvif_down) does that. It is right before this new napi_del in xenvif_disconnect.
