Maintaining ChangeLogs is the job of SCM. At least don't put my name here. ;-)

No need for cast and brackets.

Useless comment.

pbuf is void *.

pbuf is void *.

pbuf is void *.

You leak newpacket.

"Packets have fixed size" is enough.

For what? Useless comment, anyway.

People usually leave space after KERN_*.

Almost trailing whitespace.

Also, try to fit both comments and code in 80 characters, run comments through
spellchecker, use consistent style for comments (
/* foo /* foo
bar 1 */ or * bar 1 */
) is OK.
