      [NET]: Remove gratuitous use of skb->tail in network drivers. · 689be439
      David S. Miller authored
      
      
      Many drivers use skb->tail unnecessarily.
      
      In these situations, the code roughly looks like:
      
      	dev = dev_alloc_skb(...);
      
      	[optional] skb_reserve(skb, ...);
      
      	... skb->tail ...
      
      But even if the skb_reserve() happens, skb->data equals
      skb->tail.  So it doesn't make any sense to use anything
      other than skb->data in these cases.
      
      Another case was the s2io.c driver directly mucking with
      the skb->data and skb->tail pointers.  It really just wanted
      to do an skb_reserve(), so that's what the code was changed
      to do instead.
      
      Another reason I'm making this change as it allows some SKB
      cleanups I have planned simpler to merge.  In those cleanups,
      skb->head, skb->tail, and skb->end pointers are removed, and
      replaced with skb->head_room and skb->tail_room integers.

      Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
      even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
      archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
      3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
      git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
      infrastructure for it.
      
      Let it rip!
