    Use sock_alloc_send_skb() as you do now, but if it fails wait for socket
    space to become available just like TCP does, then loop back and try to
    allocate again if the space-wait doesn't return an error.

    I think you should be able to reuse sk_stream_wait_memory() for this
    purpose just fine and without any problems.
