Subject[PATCH 3.4 35/43] skbuff: add an api to orphan frags
Date
3.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: "Michael S. Tsirkin" <mst@redhat.com>

commit a353e0ce0fd42d8859260666d1e9b10f2abd4698 upstream.

Many places do
if ((skb_shinfo(skb)->tx_flags & SKBTX_DEV_ZEROCOPY))
skb_copy_ubufs(skb, gfp_mask);
to copy and invoke frag destructors if necessary.
Add an inline helper for this.
