Subject[ 075/167] [PATCH 15/26] tcp: avoid order-1 allocations on wifi and tx path
3.2-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Eric Dumazet <eric.dumazet@gmail.com>

[ This combines upstream commit
a21d45726acacc963d8baddf74607d9b74e2b723 and the follow-on bug fix
commit 22b4a4f22da4b39c6f7f679fd35f3d35c91bf851 ]

Marc Merlin reported many order-1 allocations failures in TX path on its
wireless setup, that dont make any sense with MTU=1500 network, and non
SG capable hardware.

After investigation, it turns out TCP uses sk_stream_alloc_skb() and
used as a convention skb_tailroom(skb) to know how many bytes of data
payload could be put in this skb (for non SG capable devices)

Note : these skb used kmalloc-4096 (MTU=1500 + MAX_HEADER +
sizeof(struct skb_shared_info) being above 2048)

Later, mac80211 layer need to add some bytes at the tail of skb
(IEEE80211_ENCRYPT_TAILROOM = 18 bytes) and since no more tailroom is
available has to call pskb_expand_head() and request order-1
allocations.

This patch changes sk_stream_alloc_skb() so that only
sk->sk_prot->max_header bytes of headroom are reserved, and use a new
skb field, avail_size to hold the data payload limit.

This way, order-0 allocations done by TCP stack can leave more than 2 KB
of tailroom and no more allocation is performed in mac80211 layer (or
any layer needing some tailroom)

avail_size is unioned with mark/dropcount, since mark will be set later
in IP stack for output packets. Therefore, skb size is unchanged.
