Why am I not surprised :-(

There is no bug here, if Coverity warns every single time skb_peek()
is used and not tested against NULL, that's a very serious shortcoming
of Coverity or what it has been taught about SKB queues.

It needs to learn that skb_queue_len() != 0 implies skb_peek() will
not return NULL sans locking errors.
