Subject: [PATCH] skb_put: remove not needed check for skb linearity

It is safe to call skb_put() on packets containing fragments.

Actually I have a case where I allocate packet header with some
extra headroom and then I dynamically add data as frag_list. After
adding frags I have to add more data to header and skb_put()
just BUG's on me :)

And we will save couple instructions for CPU.
