I don't think this is doing what you intend it to do.

First, you're conditionally calling sk_allocation() if
'sk' is non-NULL. But then later you unconditionally
use sk_allocation() in the alloc_skb() call.

Furthermore, in the conditionalized case you're using
"skb->sk" instead of plain "sk" which is what you actually
checked against NULL.

I have no fundamental problem with this change, so please
audit this patch for similar problems, fix them all up,
and resubmit.

I'm also tossing the rest of your networking changes since
they'll have some dependency on this one, please resend those
at the same time as the fixed up version of this one.

Thanks.
