Hi Greg,

I am so sorry I didn't catch this in my initial report but this commit
along with ba7aaf93ef2f ("netlink: Don't shift with UB on nlk->ngroups")
breaks mobile data on both the Pixel 2 XL and OnePlus 6. There is signal
but it just never connects to 3G/LTE. Reverting those two commits fixes
the issue.

Nothing stands out to me in dmesg unfortunately and iven neither device
is running a vanilla kernel, I cannot say if this is a problem in mainline
or not but I just wanted to make you aware of it.

Thanks!
Nathan
