I can see the path:
__kfree_skb -> skb_release_all -> skb_release_data -> put_page
put_page will free the page iff the _count variable reaches 0. Of course,
_count is incremented by get_page.

I will give it try.

I understand that this will work regardless the order given to
alloc_pages right ?

Thanks
