    The out_of_order_queue check is bogus because the fast path should be never
    entered when there are ooo packets. Also you just introduced a costly
    additional function call with useless checking (sk!=NULL etc.) to an
    important fast path. Why should we go through all the hazzles of header
    prediction, if all benefits are later destroyed by lazy coding like this?

    I also don't see what you're trying to archieve with this change.


    This is like TV. I don't like TV.
