I just started looking at the skbuff|net|llc code last night, hopefully 
these aren't totally stupid questions/comments.

looks like this can be done easily with skb_tailroom()..  

I am curious if we should also be verifying that dsize is valid?  Its 
value is coming from a recv'd llc packet.  

The llc header is |mac|mac|16bit length|.  The above code seems to be 
piggy backing a normal ethernet header struct, by using h_proto as the 
llc length.  I am not sure if that length value can be trusted and we run 
the risk of memcpy'ing off the end of the source structure/skbuff?

This suggestion escapes me.  The skb_put() call in the above 
code would increase skb->tail.  Wont skb_realloc_headroom() create 
additional space between skb->head and skb->data when we really want it 
between skb->tail and skb->end?
