    s2io does. e1000 does it with skb frags.
    If your hardware allows header split and driver can put headers into
    skb->data and real data into frag_list, that allows to create various
    interesting things like receiving zero-copy support and netchannels
    support. It is work in progress, not official direction currently,
    but this definitely will help your driver to support future high
    performance extensions.
