Looks like we are talking about different directions of the dataflow.
I meant that set of pages submitted into the sending part will be copied
if sending interface does not support acceleration, and thus it will
copy part of the page corresponding to the linear part of the skb prior
the transmission, so even if skb will be freed right after that call
(prior data transmission by the hardware), it should not affect copied
data.
