At least with this patch it should not panic.
More correct solution might be to use pskb_may_pull() or check aditional
length in llc_fixup_skb().
Actually if dmesg will show that there is something in fragments, it
should use pskb_may_pull(). The same bug exist in bridge and vlan, btw,
so it might be a solution to remove bug_on from skb_pull_rcsum() and
instead call may_pull?
