I've finally made the test:
Packet is not going through device due to this test:
	if (inet->cork.length + size > 0xFFFF - fragheaderlen) {
		ip_local_error(sk, EMSGSIZE, rt->rt_dst, inet->dport, mtu);
		return -EMSGSIZE;
in ip_append_page()

inet->cork.length reach 61448 then this failure occurs
size = 4096
fragheaderlen = 20

What do you mean with global offset ?
