Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: allow better page reuse in splice(sock ->
 pipe)

From: Eric Dumazet <edumazet@...gle.com>

splice() from socket to pipe needs linear_to_page() helper to transfert
skb header to part of page.

We can reset the offset in the current sk->sk_sndmsg_page if we are the
last user of the page.
