Subject[PATCH V2 net] tuntap: properly align skb->head before building skb
An unaligned alloc_frag->offset caused by previous allocation will
result an unaligned skb->head. This will lead unaligned
skb_shared_info and then unaligned dataref which requires to be
aligned for accessing on some architecture. Fix this by aligning
alloc_frag->offset before the frag refilling.

Fixes: 0bbd7dad34f8 ("tun: make tun_build_skb() thread safe")
