Well, just ask Jon Mason to double check ;)

I think the commit intent was to set gso_size :

   skb_shinfo(skb)->ufo_size will indicate the length of data part in each IP
    fragment going out of the adapter after IP fragmentation by hardware.

The fact that it states "skb->data will contain MAC/IP/UDP header and
skb_shinfo(skb)->frags[] contains the data payload." seems irrelevant.

If Neterion driver mandates that skb->head *only* contains the
MAC/IP/UDP header, that should be handled in the driver itself.
