This is a sane use of skb refcounting, right? It seems to work, so if
it's OK I'll redo the offending patch with this change to avoid breaking
the bisection, and submit a new pull request.

Very glad I added the BUILD_BUG_ON on the cb struct size now. Perhaps
there should be a generic helper for that? Something like
 skb_cb_cast(struct foo_cb, skb) could do it automatically...?
