2 aspects:
- net-next is closed for this week and the next one, due to the merge
window. You'll have to wait until it reopens.
- Actually I was asking you this because sja1105 PTP no longer works
after this change, due to the change of txflags.

Do you want me to try and send a version using pskb_expand_head and you
can test if it works for your tail-tagging switch?

I think it would be best to use the unlikely(tail_tag) approach though.
The reallocation function should still be in the common code path. Even
for a non-1588 switch, there are other code paths that clone packets on
TX. For example, the bridge does that, when flooding packets. Currently,
DSA ensures that the header area is writable by calling skb_cow_head, as
far as I can see. But the point is, maybe we can do TX reallocation
