Grrr, I bet it's coming from a combination of the
skb_set_mac_header(skb, 0); call done by mac80211 and the skb_push()
calls in net/packet/af_packet.c

davem@...set:~/src/GIT/net-2.6$ egrep skb_push net/packet/af_packet.c
	skb_push(skb, skb->data - skb_mac_header(skb));
			skb_push(skb, skb->data - skb_mac_header(skb));
			skb_push(skb, skb->data - skb_mac_header(skb));
