Does anyone think that allocating skbs during system idle time
would be useful?

I really don't like these sorts of things, because it makes an
assumption as to what memory is about to be used for.

What if you were to preallocate skbs while idle, then the next thing
which happens is some userland program walks over a 2gb dataset and
no network activity happens at all.
