[NET]: Implement SKB fast cloning.
Protocols that make extensive use of SKB cloning, for example TCP, eat at least 2 allocations per packet sent as a result. To cut the kmalloc() count in half, we implement a pre-allocation scheme wherein we allocate 2 sk_buff objects in advance, then use a simple reference count to free up the memory at the correct time. Based upon an initial patch by Thomas Graf and suggestions from Herbert Xu. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <email@example.com>
