You can add a new argument to consume_skb() which indicates to remote
schedule a local free.

I would also suggest to record the TX cpu at dev_hard_start_xmit()
time, rather than somewhere higher up such as the socket layer.
Otherwise you'll mess up routing/netfilter cases, and also mishandle
task migration.

But a very excellent idea.
