That skb isn't a network packet. Its a CPL_PASS_ACCEPT_REQ message (see
struct cpl_pass_accept_req in the Ethernet driver t3_cpl.h). If the
RDMA driver hadn't registered to listen on that addr/port, it would
never get this skb. Once a connection is established, the MPA messages
(and any TCP payload data) is delivered to the RDMA driver in the form
of skb's containing struct cpl_rx_data. So these skbs aren't just TCP
packets at all. They either control messages or TCP payload. Either way
they are encapsulated in CPL message structures.

Does this make sense?
