I agree.  In fact if we adopt some of the conventions used by
stream protocols such as the use of sk_forward_alloc, we should
be able to share code with TCP accounting too.

As it is every packet updates a global counter, using sk_forward_alloc
would mean that for most packets you only update a per-socket counter
which then would feed into the global counter at points such as socket
creation and destruction.

Cheers,
