Subject: [PATCH] netpoll: Fix skb tail pointer in netpoll_send_udp()

As skb->tail wasn't updated after skb_copy_to_linear_data(), subsequent
calls to skb_realloc_headroom() (as made by an ethernet driver's
ndo_start_xmit routine) would only effectively copy the packet headers,
leaving garbage in the payload.

In the process, removed some unnecessary code.
