    That's unlikely, since again this will be unused by the all but iscsi
    users. But you can be tricky and replace skb destructor with your own
    pointer and call 'old' destructor yourself. Its main goal is to adjust
    socket memory statistics and since all iscsi sockets are under your full
    control, you can play with it. Although this sounds like a hack, with
    proper implementation it is not that bad idea. As additional pointer you
    can use sk_user_data which is used by rpc socket calls only iirc.
