Interesting. I think skb_goodcopy will sometimes
set *page to NULL. Will the above crash then?

don't put empty line here. if below is part of same logical block as
skb_goodcopy.

don't we care that *page might not be NULL? why not?

Local variable shadows a parameter.
It seems gcc will let you get away with a warning,
but this is not legal C.

If this happens, we have corrupted memory already.
We do need this check, but please put is before you increment
nr_frags.

This will propagate the error up the stack and corrupt
more memory.

Here, skb is some random part of packet, don't propagate
it up the stack.

sizeof hdr->hdr

space around +

So why are we queueing this still?

MAX_SKB_FRAGS + 2 will be more readable.
Also, create a macro for this constant and document
why does +2 make sense?

Again, pls explain *why* do we want 16 byte alignment.
Also this code seems duplicated?
Please put structs at top of file where they
can be found.

I prefer --i.
Also, total is just a constant.
So simply MAX_SKB_FRAGS + 1 will be clearer.
Why do we scan last to first?
If there's reason, please add a comment.

space around - .
All the if (i == 1) handling on exit is really hard to grok.
How about moving common code out of this loop
into a function, and then you can
for (i = total - 1; i > 1; i--) {
handle(i);
}
handle(1);
handle(0);
add_buf

do we really need *oom here and below?
We can just set err to ENOMEM, no?

Please do not return 0 on failure.
