I cannot understand how this can help.

__netdev_alloc_skb() is supposed to already take into account NUMA
properties :

int node = dev->dev.parent ? dev_to_node(dev->dev.parent) : -1;

If this doesnt work, we should correct core stack, not only pktgen :)

Are you allocating memory in the node where pktgen CPU is running or the
node close to the NIC ?
