SubjectRe: [PATCH] skb destructor enhancement idea

The idea, or just the performance implications of my particular implementation? If
this could be done without a global spinlock would you still object to the
construction of the small linked list in each skb?

So I should #ifdef throughout the tcp and socket code wherever skb's 'destructor' is
called to call mine as well? And multiply that by N driver writers who'd like to do
the same thing? Sounds messy...
