        inet: Add ip_make_skb and ip_finish_skb
    
    It adds IPv6 version of the helpers ip6_make_skb and ip6_finish_skb.
    
    The job of ip6_make_skb is to collect messages into an ipv6 packet
    and poplulate ipv6 eader.  The job of ip6_finish_skb is to transmit
    the generated skb.  Together they replicated the job of
    ip6_push_pending_frames() while also provide the capability to be
    called independently.  This will be needed to add lockless UDP sendmsg
    support.
