This sort of "if head / tail room is to small, realloc" helper would 
be more widely applicable, we should factor it out.

And this should perhaps be pskb_expand_head().

You don't need to unshare if tailroom is 0, you just need to call
skb_cow_head(). 

I think we have this sort of code in DSA already, IIRC Vladimir wrote
it. dsa_realloc_skb() ? Can we factor out / reuse that?

You can check that first, if the packet is going to be dropped no point
doing the expansions.
