SubjectRe: Sending sk_buffs without being tied to a struct sock
At this point, if I call skb->dst->output() what should skb->data point
to? A properly crafted IP packet? Checksummed and all? I shouldn't
need any layer 2 info in my skb at all to use this solution, should I?

Thanks for the help. I think this will do the trick.
