    Short answer: none of it is. If it happens to handle jumbo frames nicely
    that is mainly a lucky accident, and we do need to check that they actually
    works.

    Minor rant: the whole skb_alloc familly has degenerated into an unholy
    mess and could use some rethinking. I believe the current patch gets as
    far as three _'s at the beginning of a function, this shows it is high
    time to reroll the api.

    Regards,
