Nack

As I already explained, alloc_skb() and netdev_alloc_skb() are
different.

Why do you repost this ?

nedev_alloc_skb() adds NET_SKB_PAD bytes.

This driver doesnt need this extra space.

(In fact it could use kmalloc(), since the skb themselves are not used
at all : At RX time, we perform a copybreak)
