I severely doubt this, the bulk of the overhead of
skb_put() is the atomic operation, not whether the
instructions get executed inline or not.

Please run some tests before making claims like this.
I might give you some slack in this area if you've
been doing networking performance tuning for 10+ years
but you haven't.
