Subject: [PATCH v2 net 1/2] tuntap: correctly linearize skb when zerocopy is used

Userspace may produce vectors greater than MAX_SKB_FRAGS. When we try to
linearize parts of the skb to let the rest of iov to be fit in
the frags, we need count copylen into linear when calling tun_alloc_skb()
instead of partly counting it into data_len. Since this breaks
zerocopy_sg_from_iovec() since its inner counter assumes nr_frags should
be zero at beginning. This cause nr_frags to be increased wrongly without
setting the correct frags.

This bug were introduced from 0690899b4d4501b3505be069b9a687e68ccbe15b
(tun: experimental zero copy tx support)

- This patch is needed for stable.
- Changes from v1: introduce a local variable to track linear size
