Instead of explicit aging you could just use the skb_head slab cache for that:
just kmalloc/kfree the data area in the slab constructor/destructor. This
could probably give you most of the advantages of recycled skbs (less
header setups) etc. in the slab environment. You may need to tune the
slab cache prunning algorithms for that a bit though because the weight
of a skbhead would be much more heavy (e.g. by giving the skbhead slab cache a
bigger priority for prunning)
