Hi Arnd,

I agree with your arguments about chunk_size.
Yet I have mixed feelings about extending the headroom. Predating 
in-driver code uses u16 for headroom (i.e. [1]), while 
xsk_pool_get_headroom returns u32.

[1] drivers/net/ethernet/mellanox/mlx5/core/en/params.c :: 
mlx5e_get_linear_rq_headroom

As this patch is a fix, let's keep it minimal, only addressing the issue 
described in title and description.
We might want to move headroom to u32 all around the driver in a 
separate patch to -next.
