Subject: [PATCH net] skbuff: back tiny skbs with kmalloc() in __netdev_alloc_skb() too

Commit 3226b158e67c ("net: avoid 32 x truesize under-estimation for
tiny skbs") ensured that skbs with data size lower than 1025 bytes
will be kmalloc'ed to avoid excessive page cache fragmentation and
memory consumption.
However, the same issue can still be achieved manually via
__netdev_alloc_skb(), where the check for size hasn't been changed.
Mirror the condition from __napi_alloc_skb() to prevent from that.

Fixes: 3226b158e67c ("net: avoid 32 x truesize under-estimation for tiny skbs")
