SubjectRe: skb_padto and small fragmented transmits
   From: Chris Leech <>

I fail to see how the statement "skb->len + skb->data_len" has any
usable meaning, or how it can be anything other than a bug.

This equation is the standard way to find the full length
on any skb. For linear skbs, data_len is always zero.

I asked Alan to use this formula so that greps on the source
tree would always show data_len being taken into account, and
thus usage would be consistent.
