    net: make GRO aware of skb->head_frag · d7e8883c
    Eric Dumazet authored
    GRO can check if skb to be merged has its skb->head mapped to a page
    fragment, instead of a kmalloc() area.
    We 'upgrade' skb->head as a fragment in itself
    This avoids the frag_list fallback, and permits to build true GRO skb
    (one sk_buff and up to 16 fragments), using less memory.
    This reduces number of cache misses when user makes its copy, since a
    single sk_buff is fetched.
    This is a followup of patch "net: allow skb->head to be a page fragment"
