This patch and the previous one breaks the compilation on one of my
machines. Specifically, this bit:

Causes this compile error:

/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c:648:1: directives may not be used inside a macro argument
/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c:647:39: unterminated argument list invoking macro "memcpy"
/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c: In function `pskb_expand_head':
/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c:651: `memcpy' undeclared (first use in this function)
/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c:651: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
/home/muli/kernel/trident/trident.git/net/core/skbuff.c:651: for each function it appears in.)

muli@...n:~/kernel/trident/trident.git$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/3.2.3/specs

Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-53)

It happens because memcpy ends up being a macro, and this gcc dislikes
having a preprocessor directive inside a macro argument. I don't know
if if it's valid in general, but Documentation/Changes does say we
still support gcc 3.2...

Cheers,
Muli
