It's compensation substitution for page_pool support in skb netsack.
And should be considered in combine with:

skb = build_skb(xmeta, cpsw_rxbuf_total_len(pkt_size));
...
page_pool_recycle_direct(pool, page);
page_ref_inc(page);
netif_receive_skb(skb);

Here order is important.

I will correct comments in final version (w/o overloading) ofc, leaving
thinking environment for people. I think it's fair enough about this.
